Brother David, I remember my first contact with you in Boston speaking at the Prudential Center, and years later at the retreat with Dr. Christina Puchalski in Assisi. The pomegranate has much meaning to me. and I appreciate your using it’s flower as a symbol of rebirth. Here in California, the promise of this flower has become a lush fruit which comforts and delights. The pomegranate is a symbol of giving ones self as it busts open when ripe, I also like using it to portray caregivers, who are crusty on the outside, but full of richness and self-service. A quote I wrote for the opening pages of my book, “The Soul of Caregiving, A Caregiver’s Guide to Healing and Transformation” is “Just as the pomegranate reveals its inner secrets in due season, so does Soul refresh with insight and wisdom.” Thank you for all you go. I am very grateful. Dr. Edward M Smink PhD
