Norrms has written what he calls “his last book.” It may be. I hope it’s not. It was a pleasure to read and review. Be well, my friend!
An Honest Look Through the Eyes That See
In The Lewy Body Soldier you get to know Norrm Mc Namara (Norm Mac) as a man, a poet, and a force of nature. Through his poems and his prose you will experience his sensitive and caring heart. You will feel his unrelenting drive, focus, and ambition that were needed to carry the Purple Angel from a doodle on a page to a worldwide symbol of hope. You will learn the history of the symbol and of the man. You will become educated, encouraged, touched and saddened. But you will also be bolstered to pick yourself up and inspired to go make the difference you can make in this world we share.
Although Norrms has many distinctions and achievements, his words and his actions are not for himself but for the benefit of others. He is not a shameless self-promoter. He is not focused on how his works can enhance his status or line his pockets. He is a true soul with a clear heart. His heart is one of service. His motive is his mission. And his mission is to make the world better for anyone who has dementia.
He describes the depression he suffered due to his diagnosis as a “concrete overcoat.” Through his words, in his story, we see how his drive, his purpose, and his unstoppable spirit chisels cracks in that concrete overcoat allowing his (purple) angel wings to spread.
For those searching for meaning and insight into the disease of Lewy Bodies, I would encourage you to read this book. For those who want to know what impact this disease has on the people who have it, this book is for you. For those who think this fight is for others and there is nothing you can do to combat the effects of cognitive conditions, The Lewy Body Soldier will leave you uplifted, inspired, and ready to play your part in crafting a better, brighter new day.
