I wanted the way I made my books and eased them into the world to reflect the kinship themes expressed in their pages. I hoped to add my voice to those who were doing business differently, who were as eager (more eager) to give back as they were to take in.Often, simple kindnesses are all we can offer a troubled world. Yet simple can be grand, and good enough - resounding in ways we can only begin to imagine.Heartsong Books was born from these intentions.Here is what inspired the publishing of Caring in Remembered Ways:For months in 1986 and in 1990, I helped care first or my father and then for my mother in their home while each was dying. I was as present and loving as I could be those times, considering my depth of understanding regarding life and death--also considering where I stood in my evolution as a human being. I know now many gestures and words and practical acts that would have been of comfort to my parents--and, more important, attitudes I could have cultivated that would have eased our relating, for all our sakes. In a section of Caring in Remembered Ways, Ive shared what being with my parents and others, since then, who were dying, has fired in me, in the hope this sharing will do some good. . .
