Illness offers a window on one's way of life

On her eponymous blog, Daphne Michaels includes a quote from Thomas Moore about his broken heart, and his reaction to the physician’s recommendation that he undergo angioplasty.

According to Michaels, Moore said, "One thing I plan to do is to take a trip to Ireland. Ireland really soothes me. My blood pressure goes down when I am there; it just drops right down. So I am trying to listen to illness as an opportunity to reflect not just on my body, but on my way of life."
