This study focuses on identifying natural caring for the human being through creative writing. It offers increased understanding of creative writing through a case study. It illustrates caring in written texts created by one participant during 17 years and in an interview. The results of the study show three themes of natural caring in an analysis of creative writing materials: caring in relation to oneself, caring in relation to the world one lives in, and caring in relation to one's own time perspective in life. These findings may help to identify caring through creative writing within or outside clinical practice.
