This is a book of encouragement, awareness, humor, joy, and gratefulness by a remarkable woman.
The haiku in this book came to Mary Martha Aggeler, known as Sister Marti, in the time between her diagnosis of terminal cancer and her last breath. It was her lifelong practice to convert her life experience into haiku. As her friend the haiku master Cliff Edwards put it, "Haiku becomes a doorway into the meaning of our own life." This is certainly true of the poems in this book, not only for Marti but also for the reader.
This book contains a poignant year of Sister Marti's life -- on a journey we must all make.
