In My Mind is a compilation of poems and short stories written by Paul Tremewan, a much loved teacher from Flint, Michigan, towards the end of his life and his fierce battle against a horrible degenerative disease; rapid onset Bulbar type ALS.
The poems include Paul's musings and prayers chronicling the last two years of his life; his struggle and faith while coming to grips with his mortality and the hereafter. The short stories are a collection of inspirational anecdotes from Paul's career as teacher, which he would fondly retell to his friends and family from time to time.
These stories give the reader a glimpse into the experiences, wisdom, humor and the genuine caring soul Paul was while on this earth. These were put to paper before Paul’s passing so they would not be lost to posterity and so they can be shared with the world.
In My Mind shares the thoughts, prayers and short stories of a brilliantly sharp mind trapped in the failing body of a bed ridden, dying man. The hope of this book is to continue Paul’s legacy of service and caring for other people, to serve as a source of light to those struggling with terminal illness or life crisis, as well as an inspiration to people of faith.
