The Art of Helping, by Mark Tulin/ Age of Empathy


,,,before she settles in sleep,

making sure I prop her head,

covering her feet and arms

so she doesn’t catch a chill

–excerpt from The Art of Helping.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
