Logline or Blurb: Virginia Woolf wrote, "how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed". We live in a society which values visible strength; social prominence, conspicuous wealth and ostentatious achievement. Illness leads one to undiscovered countries; places where a poem can save our lives, where the gift of yellow flowers brings precious moments of blazing joy; and where self-knowledge, empathy and gratitude flourish; these are countries to which I have been lead. And now, with these essays I share some of my travels with you. I hope you enjoy them.
