Take a look at the world from "a birds-eye view"... And then the Hawk said...explores and chronicles the seven year journey between a very confused human seeking answers as well as guidance and the voice of a higher presence that one day chose to make itself known in the form of a wise and loving red tailed hawk who came to life one wintry morning in the quiet corner of a long dormant and doubt filled imagination. Revealed within the pages of this story about their journey together is the joyful discovery that a human can, in fact fly and that understanding how to suspend all disbelief in regards to what one has been conditioned to believe about themselves as well as what they are capable of creating and being can open the doors to endless possibilities in life. The Hawk patiently explains how to find the courage to walk away from the endless noise of the outside world and accept the wisdom of the often ignored but always patient voice of one's true self while intuitively cautioning along the way that this endeavor is not for the faint of heart. A deep love for the present-day world, especially it's children, as well as a growing concern over the seemingly negative mindset and course the world is taking was the inspiration for one person to find all of the courage required to make a profoundly life changing decision and that was to quite simply...be still and listen.

The Spirit speaks to each soul individually and it has spoken to D.C. Morris, helping her discover her true inner self. As both a searcher and a writer on "the self" I can relate deeply to this enthralling human adventure... A very worthy read that speaks of courage, wisdom, and positive mindset; if only you will listen!. Her writing style is honest, deep, and captivating. Her experiences echo and validate my own thoughts, over and over again, from a different perspective.
Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite All of us have an inner voice that we listen to, the one that helps us in making decisions whether they are concrete or loosely based upon our emotions. And Then The Hawk Said… by D.C. Morris is that type of story about human nature. The hawk taps into our inner voice during life’s journey. The hawk has a keen sense of sight and awareness that is translated during the journey. In And Then The Hawk Said… by D.C. Morris, the hawk becomes the teacher and educates us differently from its aerial viewpoint. The journey covers various aspects of human nature from courage, trust, awareness, purpose, self-reliance, acceptance and balance to respect. If we begin to see things from a different viewpoint, we will then begin to make better choices. I found And Then The Hawk Said… by D.C. Morris to be interesting because it has a cultural element to its message as in the Native American culture. I too believe that we must learn to train ourselves to see human nature from another viewpoint, to help us to be more effective in how we approach it. This passage in And Then The Hawk Said…. by D.C. Morris: “Living is not for the faint at heart that lives in fear…. Smile at the temporal and temporary and embrace it as you would a child……” sums it up in showing that we must approach life as a child by embracing the moment because nothing is promised. Life brings with it a series of ups and downs.
