"Moving on into Morning" begins with a 23-page foreword that is a record of each significant event in the 18 months leading up to author James Stockwell's wife Elsie's death from lung cancer, including hospital and doctor visits, reaction to medications, discussions with family members and James' own emotional responses. The 74 poems that follow the foreword express Elsie's response to the cycle of treatments, the events that occurred on the way to her death and her final thoughts as death approaches. "Thousands of people throughout the world face the loss of a loved one to terminal illness," James said. "This book brings to the surface the day-to-day agonies of losing someone you love, especially for those of us who are overwhelmed by all the decisions that have to be made when a loved one is confronting the inevitability of death." The Stockwells were totally unprepared to deal with a life-ending terminal illness and although they had used some of the best hospitals and doctors in the world, they still lacked the personal experience and education required to deal with 4th stage lung cancer. Let the Stockwells' words help you re-examine your own life. About the Author James Stockwell co-founded Adage Inc., an early stage computer company credited with designing and marketing the first computer graphics terminal. As a consultant, he traveled throughout the U.S. interviewing more than 2,000 persons to identify candidates for senior-level positions in many different fields. Now retired, he is the editor of the Villager, a quarterly literary publication at Carleton-Willard Village in Massachusetts. Elsie Wear Stockwell was an artist and had two books of poetry published, "The Light Between the Leaves" and "For a Stranger Here." iUniverse is the premier book publisher for emerging, self-published authors.
