Dancing with Lou Gehrig's Disease: The Poetry, Art & Writing of Ilene Kouzel
Dancing With Lou Gehrig's Disease is a collection of signposts where Ilene Kouzel paused to mark her feelings, thoughts and desires alongside a path of confronting physical loss and death. She faced death on her own terms, with courage and anger; with grace and spirituality; with tears and integrity; and above all, with a quick wit and much laughter. Ilene's writings and art reveal how she created an experience of living well while dying from a terminal illness. The writings are an inspiration and a challenge for each of us to learn how to live consciously in the face of our own mortality--and the mortality of those we love. Laugh, and cry, along with Ilene as she shares her innermost thoughts and feelings about her dance with Lou Gehrig's Disease.
