A new Menu Item, "Paly Authors" has been added to the Paly Alumni site.
Sarah mentioned awhile back that she was writing this book. It will be released in September, 2019. Happened to see this on Amazon.com
In her journal Pomegranate Years, Sarah Kafatou relates her thoughts and activities during the three years from 2014 to 2017 Fotis Kafatos, her husband of over four decades entered the nearby long-term care facility until the time of his death.
Sarah, an American poet and painter, and Fotis, an internationally distinguished biologist, chose to settle in Crete, where he was born and grew up after he had become severely affected by Alzheimer's.
The implicit question the writer of the journal asks is: How shall I live well, even as my beloved husband is dying? Her answer includes thoughtfully managing Fotis’s care. It also entails abiding engagement with painting, hiking, playing the piano, enjoying visits with her adult children and their families, and partaking of the companionship of friends. All these endow her life and writing with resilience and gusto. Reading Pomegranate Years, you’ll engage with a writer who invites engagement.
