Assunta Maria is blessed to be retired from a lifelong career as a Registered Nurse in a wonderful variety of settings. Having cared for people in the human condition over 33 years, perspective deepens. Becoming the patient takes you deeper still. Losing memory and capacity is a terrifying and cruel position to be in, more devastating to have to face alone, whether temporary or degenerative. My hope is to be able to convey my significant life experiences before I lose too much of myself ~ in my pending book ~ the title of which reflects my belief in a rich truth which my three year old daughter actually said to me in 1979… that LIFE IS A DREAM OF GODS’.
