Welcome to my website and blog. My name is Lucinda Porter. As a nurse and writer, much of my work has been dedicated to raising awareness about hepatitis C and advocating for people affected by it. Although viral hepatitis is still a huge problem in the United States as well as the world, I am expanding the focus of my life and this website to include other issues most of us grapple with, specifically, life, death and health.
Here are some questions I plan on exploring:
- What does it mean to be healthy?
- Can we be in illness, pain, and grief and still be healthy?
- What are ways we can embrace health, especially when we feel uninspired, lonely, unwell, and out of ideas?
- Can we talk about death?
- What are our choices around death?
- What is fear, and how do we live with it?
- Are there secrets to life?
- How do we age well?
- Can we change, especially when we are older?
- What does it mean to be fully alive?
There are many other questions. Those of you who have read my blog for the past five years know that I have more questions than answers. And even when I think I have answers, I don’t. I have ideas and I share them, but I am not attached to them.
