This book "Poems from the Heart" was a project that began in the early 1980's. In this book I have varieties of poems all from a experience,a thought, a dream. Many words are written and spoken of real life and feeling.This is what I attempt to convey to the reader as I write. I want them to experience the writing as if it were their expierence as well, to pull them into the page. You will experience four kinds of poems here Inspirational,Romantic,Exotic,and Tiger Poems. The tiger poems were written to try to help save the tiger in nepal. They are all written from my heart, They are truly "Poems from the Heart"
“From the Heart” is Poetry I have written during my four year battle of cirrhosis of the liver, hepatic encelphalopathy and liver cancer, that with the heartfelt, lifesaving Gift of Life from my Hero, my donor won my battle. I was given the opportunity during my illness to write my Prayers, feelings and emotioins during my long journey. Writing my book was my sanctuary finding peace within expressing how I was feeling while I was dying. Donate Life

Over the past twenty-five years, Chicano artists have made a unique contribution to public art in California, transforming thousands of walls into colorful artworks that express the dreams, achievements, aspirations, and cultural identity of the Mexican-American community. Signs From the Heart tells the inside story of this new and important American art form in four interpretive essays by noted Chicano scholars about its historical, artistic, and educational significance.
The vision behind this book I was inspired to write this book because of the great need in the long-term care industry to blend love, compassion, and respect when caring for residents. The spirit of love and compassion for the work we do and those we care for is vital in long-term care. This sense of caring and concern for residents can never be replaced by advancements in modern technology. Rather it is provided one-on-one, one person at a time. This book will help readers at several levels. It will help you understand the basics of long-term care giving, and will also help you assess whether you have the heart and temperament for care giving. Written in non-technical terms, the book is easy to understand even if you have no experience in care giving. In the text Ive combined my personal experiences with the realities of care giving, and even a bit of humor, while covering standard procedures in the long-term care setting. At its heart this book focuses on the basics of personal, hands-on care for those who need it most. The book was written in the spirit of love, respect, humility, and compassion. For that is where it all began, with the mother of nursing, Florence Nightingale, who demonstrated care giving from the heart.
Presented in a question-and-answer format, a comprehensive guide to the circulatory system discusses blood poisoning, heartburn, and a wealth of other relevant topics and features tables, source notes, graphs, photographs, and black-and-white line art as well as a glossary and an index.
The three spunky ladies who so charmed readers in The Ladies of Convington Send Their Love and The Gardens of Covington welcome us back to the small Southern town of Covington, to their quaint white farmhouse with yellow shutters on Cove Road. Life lessons abound throughout From the Heart of Covington, as housemates Hannah, Grace, and Amelia continue to surround themselves with love and hope, meeting each new challenge with equanimity and heart and placing their trust in one another as their friendship strengthens and grows. In helping a dear friend and neighbor cope with illness, the ladies develop a deeper mutual compassion and a true appreciation for the softness of heart and toughness of spirit that join them as women. Amelia, feeling strong and adventurous, takes a momentous trip to New York City to further her burgeoning photography career. Grace, kindhearted as ever, becomes involved with a little girl at the local elementary school who may be having terrible problems at home. Meanwhile, Hannah's daughter, Laura, is involved in a tragic accident that has serious consequences for all concerned. With the same compassion and heart readers have already come to know and love, Joan Medlicott once again reveals how life's journeys and challenges only strengthen our loving commitments to family, friends, and loved ones. It's another inspiring message of courage, self-acceptance, and hope.
As I experienced various situations and personal encounters during my life, it is my intention to not only reflect upon them but to also hope that my readers experience reflections of their own and, in some ways, relate to my words and feelings. Prior to this publication, various people read selected works and experienced a very emotional feeling, and in several cases, they were moved to tears. While being published is clearly a very high honor, to witness others respond in such an emotional way to my writing is just as fulfilling and is in a very real way a validation of my work and elicits in me, a feeling of immense joy.
