In response to Sheryl M. Ness, R.N.’s blog post: ‘Personality affects how cancer survivors deal with care’

August 30th, 2013 Posted in Uncategorized

I wrote this to a friend a couple of years ago.  Neither extraversion not introversion struck me as her defining characteristics, but she is a very well grounded Spatial Dynamics Practitioner with immense knowledge of Rudolph Steiner’s spiritual teaching and a wonderful capacity to care.

I do not know you, Sheryl, but can see you write from the heart and am sure you will gain increased wisdom from the practice.

Here is the poem I wrote on 18th July 2011.  At the time I was in the practice of writing a double acrostic on Choreographing Transformation every day of the month, so there are 31 like this, each expressing a different set of circumstances.  My own health was taking years to diagnose but the doctors were highly concerned.  Things are stabilising now.


I hope that makes sense to you.  Please let me know if I can clarify anything.

Interestingly I have just had a book of my poetry published: ‘Choreographing Calligraphy’:


It is available on Amazon and via the publisher (just scroll past the calendars):

I shall be fascinated to hear more from our growing understanding of how personality affects our ability to receive care.

All the best,
