"In the world outside the hospital, we generally assume that we
are in control, that we are masters of our lives, that we are in
charge of how our experiences will unfold from moment to moment, from
day to day. At the door to the hospital one leaves these illusions
behind. Step into the hospital and one enters a different
reality—one moves, as Rachel Naomi Remen puts it so beautifully,
from the land of mastery to the land of mystery." Enjoy the full
