“Surviving the Open Heart” and interviews with Anne

You never know what you’ll find in the process of open heart surgery.

Several years ago, my wife Anne and I traveled to be with her family as her father underwent open heart surgery. The experience was filled with tension and worry, but led ultimately to prayers of gratitude.

It’s in her new book Delicate Machinery Suspended, and it’s featured now at Beliefnet.

Speaking of Anne, she’s all over the place this week.

She’s interviewed about her poetry…
