Bear by Kate Marshall Flaherty
“How strange, in these corona times, I am more afraid of a tot on a trike, a super spreader unaware of her distance, than the closeness of a 900-pound bear, on his hinds, 6-inch claws dangling, sniffing my scent.”
Kate Marshall Flaherty is an award-winning poet who has recently rambled into prose. “Bear” is one of a few pieces that she wrote as a prose parallel to a poem. She had five books of poetry and has been published in numerous international anthologies. Kate lives in Toronto, Canada. where she guides StillPoint Writing and Editing Workshops online and hopefully in person again. See her performance poetry at https://katemarshallflaherty.ca

True Stories That Reveal the Depths of the Human Experience
This Bundle Includes All Four Timeless Wisdom Books
plus The Wisdom Years as a Free Bonus!
Kindness comes in many forms and affects all of us. As Mark Twain said, ‘Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.’ And while a kind gesture can often simply make someone feel better about their day, sometimes — as the twenty-five true stories collected here show — it can save a life.
Struggle and Success
We must all start somewhere. In this collection of real-life stories, 25 people take readers on an inspiring journey through the struggles they have overcome in pursuit of success. From small personal triumphs, to large career goals or lifetime achievements, each success, big or small, offers an insight into the inner workings of lives from around the globe, highlighting one of humankind’s greatest traits — resilience.
Fear and Courage
We have all felt fear, whether it’s our racing heart as we make a speech or the profound awareness of our own mortality as we await medical results. Of course, the flip-side of fear is courage, as Nelson Mandela famously said, ‘I learned that courage was not the absence of fear but the triumph over it.’
Love and Loss
Time gives us the wisdom to realize a mother’s sacrifice, a father’s love, a friend’s loyalty, or a grandparent’s kindness, as loss and love turn to memory. These 25 true stories of loss and love from around the world are inspiring and heartbreaking reminders of what is most important: life, love, memory, beauty. Loved ones are honoured in this gripping compilation, interspersed with quotes by diverse people like Beethoven, Abraham Lincoln and Dr Seuss for a book to connect with time and again.

The result is a book that carries a unique and inspiring message: life after retirement is to be enjoyed as a new, exciting and uplifting journey of personal evolution.
