My name is Lee and I’m a … human being. My being human comes with a lot
of information, coding, traits, definitions, stories and most of all,
Mystery. Working and creating within the paradigm of what is called the
“recovery” world is a great format for witnessing how being human
interacts with all the constructs that surround us as life and culture
in this world.
My wife, Deena Metzger, opens up her essay, Illness Heals the World:
“Illness is a story. It calls us to healing beyond our physical selves:
a strange contradiction. Suffering from an affliction invites us to
step into a realm of healing that can benefit ourselves, our communities
and the world. Illness is, therefore, at the very core of healing.
Not a contradiction but the strange dance of creation.”
