"Wo soll ich hin?" fragt Frau M. Statt bei ihr zu bleiben, bringt Anne die alte Dame in ihr Zimmer. Der Autor beschreibt den Pflegealltag, und deutet und erklärt ihn aus der Sicht der Pflegenden. Anschaulich und praxisnah, schildert er hilflose, oft verzweifelte Rettungsversuche von Pflegenden. Für sie eröffnet er mit seinem Bild vom Festland und dem Meer der Ver-rücktheit neue Sichtweisen und Handlungsalternativen. Für manchen eine ungewohnte Übung, eigene Bedürfnisse in den Vordergrund zu stellen und sich in Form von Rettungsbooten, Schleusen und Inseln Überlebenshilfen zu schaffen. Viele erprobte Beispiele zeigen: dieser Weg lohnt sich.
