It is heartwarming to receive such great feedback on my book Essence: contemplations in image and word. It is not just the comments I have been getting by e-mail, but also the fact that one person ordered another copy after getting the first one. I wanted to share some of the images that are in the book, which pairs 33 beautiful photographs with thought provoking poems. Each image / poem couplet extends an invitation to go deeper within oneself, to meditate on either or both. Together, they connect the inner wisdom and beauty of a person with the wisdom and beauty in Nature.
The collaboration with Stewart S. Warren, a local poet, was such a delight. In the final stages, time flew working in a combination of focus and laughter. Each one’s creativity was fed by the playful expression of ideas.
