There are moments in life powerful enough to change us instantly and forever. Far too often, though, these moments come when we aren't aware enough to notice, lost in the dramas of yesterday or our plans for tomorrow. Physicians are entrusted within the lives of their patients, lives touched by the mysteries of the universe and filled with stories to tell. These stories can teach the secrets of a life filled with meaning, of wisdom, and of extraordinary journeys. They are sacred lessons, far too precious to be hidden away in the sterility of the hospital and the coldness of the examination room. They are lessons that help uncover those special moments that leave life forever changed.

William E. Hablitzel, M.D., an internist in southern Ohio, started his career as a firefighter-paramedic for his hometown fire department. As an associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, he has been recognized for excellence in teaching. His work in rural healthcare was honored by resolutions passed by the Ohio State Senate and the Ohio House of Representatives.
Dr. Hablitzel's first book, the award-winning Dying Was the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me, has been published in countries spanning five continents. When not teaching or seeing patients, he can be found in the hills of Appalachia looking for birds, photographing nature, or cherishing the silence.
It Was Only a Moment Ago reminds us that our visit here is a brief one. Whether measured in the span of sparse years or lush decades, the human experience occupies but a sliver of the annals of time—a mere blink of the cosmos. There is an ineffable beauty to the awareness of our mortality. Life happens now, and it can be lost in yesterday or misspent waiting for tomorrow.
Dr. Hablitzel, a practicing physician and medical educator, shares the lessons gleaned from his most compelling teachers—the patients he has cared for. Through their extraordinary stories flow wisdom that can change us, thoroughly and forever, and help us discover the life we were meant to live.
