In the Spirit of Medicine: holding hands across the doorway

We come into this world through a doorway and travel this circle and hopefully make it through all four stages of life before we cross that threshold again. 

We are told the very young and the very old hold hands across that doorway.

In the Spirit of Medicine features the essays of Dr. Arne Vainio, an enrolled member of the Mille Lacs  Band of Ojibwe and a family practice doctor on the Fond Du Lac reservation in Cloquet. His essays on life, work, medicine, and spirit are published in News from Indian Country and you can find the link to this story here.
