This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This is a beautiful book that presents a visual poem about the meaning of life. While the beautiful images enhance the poem, the multiple fonts used is somewhat distracting and might be difficult for some to read. While the introduction provides some background for the writing of the poem, I am unsure if it actually adds anything to the book.

This short story of the adventures of 'a spark of life' is lovely and the accompanying illustrations by Julianne Vermilion are beautiful. Although it is short, I think it would work best without the introduction. Let the poetry and art stand alone. I liked having the translation into Mandarin and knowing that this is an artistic collaboration between cultures. The messages speak to us all. ( )

A short story illustrating the journey made by an eternal spark. Choices made on the journey and how they are reflected in a current relationship between people from different cultures are discovered. Strong graphics illustrate this story. This edition published in English and Mandarin. ( )
