About the Book
In more than 100 poems and nearly 200 pictures, this compilation invites readers to relax, consider, and journey inward through images, both written and photographed. Nature is the focus of visual images; Nature and human nature create the rich texture of poetic curiosity and exploration. Seeking until we find forms an eternal human quest to make sense of experience. The exploration, more than an official arrival, of course, is the point. So it is here.
Ann Parks McCray lives and works in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she enjoys ocean, rivers, trees, lakes, water birds, blooming flowers--everything Mother Nature has to offer. Nature is often the focus of her paintings, poetry, and photography--and so, of her books. Her work is designed to inspire, calm, and restore. McCray in her own words: "We all tiptoe along a delicate path as we attempt further self-definition through self-expression. Thank you for marking this trail with me."
