Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738861189, Paperback)

You have now read my book of poems and probably have a little insight as to who I am. I am one who is in search of Self; seeking my purpose in the Grand Universe. Why am I here? Who am I?

Some of these poems were written several years ago, put in the back of a closet, collecting dust; with no intention of ever putting them in a book. Most people, I feel, are hesitant or even afraid to have people peek into their personal thoughts. What is life, but a series of experiences? I allow my mind/body permission to serve as a channel for Spirit; my mind is open and receptive. I write these feelings, expressions, and thoughts as they enter my consciousness - some may refer to them as "inspired" writings. The thoughts are not limited to this lifetime, but are a series of lifetimes intertwined.

A friend once said, "You should publish your poems; someone may benefit from them or learn from your experiences." I thought that was ridiculous. What would someone learn from my life? But when I thought about it, an inner voice said, "Isn't that what all writers do? They write stories about their fantasies, ideas, or life histories." Writing is not limited to a select few - neither is there good or bad writing - writing is a unique gift we all possess. We only have to listen to the Silence and allow the message to come forth.

The road of life is indeed a simple one. It is our perceptions and our beliefs that can make life an arduous journey.
