Overview

"The universe, all the way from the cosmos down to our inner atmospheres, is full of objects that are pictures of other objects," says the author.

The Valley of the Shadows reflects thoughts from a colorful array of life experiences in a shadowy, sometimes confusing world where everything is a picture of a picture, and poetry is a way of demystifying this shadow world, connecting the dots between this dimension and others.

The book begins with a little allegory, and the rest of it is a reflection of that beginning allegory. Sometimes dark and brooding, The Valley of the Shadows collection ends in a joyous crescendo.

Every verse within the collection wills your mind to paint a dramatic picturesque landscape of that place we all go, to venture on a magnificent journey where our imagination realizes no walls or barriers. A place where we all must reflect on our role in a world filled with joy, pain, love and sorrow.

We share in experiences as an individual, a family, a community and a whole. Our interpretations of this journey vary from person to person. The Valley of the Shadows offers comfort to know we are all united in the pursuit of where life's manual is being stored.

These poems provide a testament to the writer's loved ones, loves lost, children, grandchildren, beautiful beginnings and calamitous endings. A picture of one individual's deepest thoughts and perspectives of the world around her. A relatable open book of honesty, vulnerability and strength.
