Memoir/Nursing – Transitions: A Nurse’s Education about Life and Death

Transitions: A Nurse’s Education about Life and DeathTransitions
By Becki Hawkins
Publisher: Lady Hawk Publishing
ISBN: 978-0984744503
Pages: 222
Genre: Inspirational, Memoir, Nursing

Transitions: A Nurse’s Education about Life and Death is a collection of stories from Becki Hawkins’s patients over the past thirty years of her career. She started off as a nurse’s aide, became a registered nurse, and began her career in oncology. A couple of years later she also started seeing hospice patients. She also did outpatient oncology nursing, home health/hospice, became a hospice chaplain, and later a hospice volunteer. She now sees patients on a volunteer basis. She began writing a feature column, “Beyond Statistics,” for a local newspaper when her husband told her one evening after her shift at work, “Please don’t tell me about it. Write it down.” The first article was published in 1986. These stories are the patients’ stories and their education to Becki as she visited them about the transitions we make in life and in death. Some of them involve patients in the nursing home, others in the hospital or an outpatient setting, and many others in the patients’ homes. Some of the patients were strangers, some were friends, some acquaintances, and some were family. You will find humor, heartbreak, wisdom, and frequent spiritual allusions in Transitions. The author reminds us that life is brief and fragile, and laced with story after story of how each of us is “learning” in this place that one patient named “Earth School.”

Nick is assigned to protect Selena and help her recover the missing text.

Memoir – Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother

Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare MotherInnocent
By B. Morrison
Publisher: Apprentice House
ISBN: 978-1934074657
Published: July 2012
Pages: 342
Genre: Memoir

With almost half of all Americans now falling below the poverty line or considered low income based on recent Census Bureau figures*, formerly middle-class families are beginning to experience the reality of poverty. According to B. Morrison the truth is quite different from the stereotype of the “welfare queen”. In her memoir, Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother (www.bmorrison.com), she describes her experience when a failed marriage sent her plummeting from a prosperous middle-class life onto welfare.

When Morrison’s marriage dissolved, she found herself with one young child and another on the way, no job, no health insurance, and no child support. Despite a college degree and prior work experience, the pregnant 24-year-old could not land a job to cover the cost of childcare, let alone food, rent, clothing, and transportation. Disowned by her family and abandoned by her husband, she realized that welfare was the only way for her family to survive.

Poor people make an easy target for politicians who play on the natural fears of middle-class workers, Morrison says. She understands and sympathizes, but maintains that in spite of the rare case of welfare fraud repeated ad nauseum in the news, most welfare mothers work tirelessly to get off of public assistance. Like all parents, they only want to work to feed and clothe their children, give them an education, and provide for them a life with at least a few moments of joy.

Morrison uses her experiences as a welfare recipient to illuminate a system that demonizes poor people and to explore what actually works to help families escape from poverty. Innocent offers a powerful personal narrative on important social issues. Part coming-of-age story and part immersion in a foreign culture, this book puts a human face on poverty. It is a must-read for anyone interested in social justice, women’s issues, or the truth behind the headlines.

Travel Memoir – Transformative Travel in Nepal: Fulfilling a Dream in the Himalayas

Transformative Travel in Nepal: Fulfilling a Dream in the HimalayasTransformative Travel in Nepal
By Kate Benzin
Publisher: GypsyDuo
ISBN: 978-0615694078
Published: September 2012
Pages: 162
Genre: Travel, Memoir, Autobiography

Fullfilling a dream! Kathmandu. Nepal. The Himalayas. An exotic area of the world that many people dream about visiting. Kate made that dream come true.

A casual phone call to a friend sparked the fulfillment of Kate’s lifelong dream of traveling to Nepal in order to trek in the Himalayas. She jokingly mentioned to her friend Kay who was planning to start a new exercise routine that they could get fit on a trip to the Himalayas.

Within just a few weeks, Kate and Kay found themselves on a plane on the way to the adventure of a lifetime:

– seeing the gorgeous snow-capped Himalayas in person so close that it seemed that Kate could just reach out her hand to touch them

– trekking for days into areas that only the most adventurous travelers ever reach.

What Kate learned about herself during the challenging and sometimes excrutiating, but always stimulating, adventure of trekking at high altitude over rough terrain truly transformed her in ways that often did not become apparent until many years later.

Follow along with Kate as she learns more about how to expand her limits so that she can truly fulfill her dream. And maybe you will find yourself motivated to fulfill your dream as well.

At the end, read a sample of Kate’s book How To Find The Heart Of Bali, an introductory guide to social and cultural Bali.
