Think about the last time you attended a talk on communication skills or goals of care discussions.

Now square that with the fact that age-related hearing loss affects about 2/3rd of adults over age 70 …

In her essay “Why Read a Poem in a Time Like This?”, Marilyn McEntyre writes: All of us need it. We need it because good poems do something prose can’t do.
