The Alchemy of Love

Sir Anthony Seldon, a British schoolmaster and political author, recently described the beautiful alchemy that transforms love  at the end of life. His wife Joanna died of cancer in December 2016.

” The illness might have withered her body, but it strengthened our love and faith.  Never had we known such profound physical intimacy and romance as just holding hands, the most of which she was physically capable”  

– Sir Anthony Seldon (from the London Telegraph newspaper article ‘Caring For My Dying Wife Brought Us Even Closer Together’)
