If you'd like to read more about Pam and her book, here is a review from a South Burlington newspaper:
MacPherson Pens Vigil The Poetry of Presence
By Pam MacPherson
So long it has been
To witness dying...
Me a caring stranger;
You on life's most meaningful voyage.
Help me to live in the present,
Value each moment,
Remember our mortal limits
As, some day
In living into my future,
I will exist as you do now,
One foot on terra (not so) firma,
The other dangling over the precipice
That holds time eternal.
Move forward on your journey.
Loosen your grasp on here and now.
You can do it, my friend.
Let your spirit rise
And your physical body fall.
