JOSHI
Maitri Hospice May 1990
died 1991

Copyright © Morgan Alexander 2004
   Joshi was an artist, an excellent calligrapher and a man of honor. He devoted his life to healing himself, taking chinese herbs, having regular acupuncture, practiced yoga and meditation and was given his buddhist name, Joshi, during the time he lived at Maitri. His room was filled with art books; he had that artist's temperment and accepted his sickness with dignity and realism. He made use of all available learning and tools. Still for the last six months of his life, he had a constant headache and doctors were unable to determine the cause. Perhaps it was simply that at that time, AZT in high doses was proven to be fatal. Behind him is an altar to his former lover, Michael, who also died of AIDS.
