Near the End of the Voyage by Fred Ehrlich

This collection, titled Near the End of the Voyage, documents observations and reflections upon the issues one deals with when nearing the end of the voyage.  These include aging, illness, loss, and death.


Fred Ehrlich is 85 years of age, retired from the practice of medicine for over ten years.  He practiced and taught child psychiatry and psychoanalysis.  In his retirement, Fred has had the freedom to look more deeply at issues he had previously tried to ignore.  Fred watched individuals and couples who were dealing with illness, loss, and death.  At the same time, he was dealing with these same matters himself.  Fred is privileged to still be able to write poems about these concerns.

26 pages, 14 poems
