I first read Jon Katz's articles in Slate online. Here's the archive link:
I fell in love with his dogs and the way he lovingly described the farm, his neighbors, his steer Elvis, and the donkeys.
Hadn't been to his website in awhile, I guess quite a long while, because there's been some changes. He's divorced and getting re-married, his daughter's written a book and he starting on a children's book.
Anyway, while I was poking around on his website, I came across his hospice journal. It only spans about a year, there's no explanation why. It could be one year is all one can do. I imagine it is a very rewarding, yet emotionally draining experience. The hospice workers and volunteers are amazing, generous people. http://hospice.bedlamfarm.com/
May I recommend a big box of Kleenex and starting at the beginning. Click on archives to select the month.
