© The Author(s) 2019. Ulla-Carin Lindquist’s Rowing Without Oars relates a life constrained by illness, in which one’s sense of “I am” becomes increasingly faint. She depicts how physical losses can inadvertently open opportunities to explore humanity’s “potential consciousness.” In seeking an answer to the question, “Who am I become to live well in this new world?” Lindquist demonstrates what it means to “become fully human, and everything that the person can become.” She captures this movement toward “potential consciousness” through simple, lyrical language and artfully constructed grammar and syntax that is devoid of deception.
