Last month I flew across the country to support my mother, who had fallen into a deep depression over my father’s progressing dementia. I brought the April 2014 issue with me, without having opened it before I left. I had no idea that it would grant me patience and compassion I otherwise wouldn’t have had.

The interview with Katy Butler, Stephen and Ondrea Levine’s words of wisdom on the nature of mind [excerpt from Who Dies?], and Mark Brazaitis’s essay on being on a locked ward [“Locked in to Life”] all gave me a feeling of serendipity during this challenging time.
