The memoir, For the Time Being, is more than a collection of one couple's letters, poems, cards, stories, illustrations and photographs. This is a book about life, love, humor in the realm of satire, romance and the inexorable heartache of cancer. It is the story of one man's strength of will and determination - no matter the odds - and the unending devotion of his friend and love, his wife. This memoir underscores 'the knowing' - the reality that miracles do happen in life - and in death. Ultimately, For the Time Being is the story of the indelible nature of the human spirit!
