Overview


Poetry. TEA WITH NANA is a book of paintings and poems, created throughout the life of woman, who from an early childhood on Long Island, was surrounded by the paintings of her artist mother and the poetry books of her poet-publisher father. This book is an exploration of her inner and outer mind, local and international, through English and several other languages (Hebrew, French, Italian). In a very real sense this book is a cross-cultural journey from birth and childhood, girlhood, teenhood, to maturation as a extraordinarily sensitive and thoughtful woman, a lover-wife and a mother, as well as a daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, sister, daughter-in-law, cousin, friend, teacher, and therapist. Her range is from Eve to Sister of the World, from her Jewish culture, through the world cultures that include the Armenian, the Sicilian, and the Blackfoot. This book is an exploration of Woman in all her phases and history, from the Beginning to the Present with a view towards the Future. In a very real sense this book is the saga of a woman who is Everywoman.
