On July 19, 2008 Frank suffered a series of heart attacks while teaching a retreat for healthcare professionals in Northern California. He underwent triple bypass surgery in San Francisco, returning to his home by the Bay to begin his journey of healing. He began writing and sharing is experiences through a web blog. Soon people were passing his writings to friends of theirs, and people he had never met wrote of how he had touched them in profound and intimate ways.
This small book is a record of those unedited writings. May they continue widening the circles of healing, and may they serve as tribute to the wise and caring man who wrote them, for the love and learning he has shared with us all.
