Overview

These poems are about life-both the little things scattered here and there and the great events that stand-alone like seasoned rocks. Through the prism of these poems, the poet is looking at polarities that define the context of our being-good and evil, sacred and profane, inner and outer, big and small, objective and subjective. We experience life in brief segments of time called "moments." They come and go. Moments become our memories, memories condition our thinking, and we are thus condemned to lead a life of loss and sorrow, fighting shadows that are basically our own creation. As a result, we move further away from the great stream of life that is harmonious and peaceful at its core.

Arranged around four themes-life, love, work, and beyond-these poems take the reader on a journey that proceeds from the purely personal to widely shared experiences of living, loving, leading, and connecting with the unknown. The beauty of the written word is enhanced by 25 images that illuminate different themes covered in the book.
