In the next — and nal — essay, Greening looks back at his work as a youth with a dying client. In spite of (or perhaps even in light of) his traditional training, he shows how “being there,” “not panicking in the face of the pathology,” and “holding out a positive vision” enabled his dying client, “Carol,” to reclaim her freedom. Dr. Greening was successful with Carol precisely because his process of relating to her superseded his technique. Like many young practitioners, Dr. Greening learned to be present precisely at the points where more conventional means failed and “doggedness,” as he put it, palpably shined through. By the end of his work with her, Carol began to die, and yet inside she began to thrive. She made peace with her cruel constraints and found hope. Dr. Greening, for his part, found inspiration — and his concluding poem is both tribute and commemoration.
