    The Journey Out of Isolation

    “Day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day … These kinds of thoughts swirl around my mind. Sometimes they’re loud and rowdy. Sometimes they’re low and murmuring. They are, however, most always there.” Kevin Sharpe from "I Am Here: The Healing Journey of Caregiving" In his exploration of the inner landscape of caregiving, Phoenix Rising therapist Kevin Sharpe identifies a path away from the naturalist isolation we feel while walking with a loved one toward the end of life. The longing for control, for recognition, for connection, felt by all parties in a caregiving situation is hard to penetrate. Mr. Sharpe identifies five interior points in the caregiving journey that lead us back to connection with the person we are losing and with our interior self. Mr. Sharpe effectively alternates between a beautifully written recollection of his role as caretaker to his dying father and his more familiar therapist-speak analysis of the interior journey. The result is a remarkable and moving book that can help guide us all through loss – loss of personal control and loss of the comfort of those we love. Although I have not been through quite the level of caregiving that Mr. Sharpe has experienced with his parents, this book brought to mind many important moments of connection and “witness” that I experienced as I lost my grandparents. Ultimately the book’s message about the importance of witness and acceptance helps the reader step back from the frenzy of tasks and decision-making to allow connection and peace.
