About the Book
Eloquent poetry dreams itself into a partnership with black and white photography that speaks to the deeper mind, planet and soul. And it is within this sacred space that we find we are also the dream, the pull of nature and a kindred soul with our planet. Though not religious, this poetry can be experienced as spiritual. Though the words and images are simple and lightly adorned, they do not lack for relevance or power in their simplicity.
I love many art forms, but am especially drawn to the innate lyricism of both music and poetry. I am a musician, writer, singer, dancer, photographer, and gardener. My primary business is performing, teaching, and publishing music for the Celtic Harp. I perform in a duo called Celtic Muse with Valerie Blessley--look us up on the web and at CD Baby. I have been drawn to poetry my whole life, using word expression as a way of claiming who I am and what I think is important. Significant themes are wonder and awe at the natural world, the power of love and hope, and the importance of spiritual exploration. Digital photography has opened a brilliant new world for me, creating a comfortable companion to my writings. I am both Wiccan and Unitarian Universalist. Writing and music is a deep part of who I am, and who I'd like you, dear reader, to meet. I am also a parent of three amazing children, a wife, and small-time farmer.
