In a conversation the question of helping other people came up.
Issan's answer had been immediate, firm, "What else is there to do?"
Amen. - dc
6-06-12 - Collaborating With Angels, Rob Lee's memoir
about Issan Tommy Dorsey and Maitri Hospice is being serialized in an
online magazine - www.subtopian.com.
The first installment is now up. Rob writes to DC:
To say it's been a long time coming is a ridiculous understatement,
but I don't regret it as the topic has such weight that time and
contemplation have been helpful. It begins with Issan but he died
pretty quickly and the project took on a life of its own. It's an
attempt at something beautiful and true and helpful. Not so easy. In
editing this book I'm revisiting all kinds of fond memories, and with
the hospice, complicated memories. Speaking of which, I hope you enjoyed
seeing the look on Issan's face reading your card shortly before he
died. He didn't have many good times in those months and that was as
happy as I saw him that summer.
