Riding the Wave
What does life with a chronic illness look and feel like? How does one live honestly and with courage, cope, and maintain hope in the midst of chronicity? Is it possible to find joy in the midst of loss? Allan Cole’s poetry offers perspectives on these questions and others, and his ability to hold in tension both the burdens of illness and some of the surprising gifts it may offer provides a way forward through illness, for those living it, those who love them, and those providing them care.
