Birth of a Light Child: One Poet's Search for Self is a book of poetry and prayer written over a sixteen year period of intense spiritual focus in the pursuit of spiritual wisdom and a felt experience of the Divine. The journey shared is both painful and joyful. In the end, I believe the most beautiful and powerful experiences were those that brought me back to self. It is my desire to share this journey that something in these words may inspire others to find the unique fire within themselves "forever calling in need of greater warmth." I am convinced that whenever we seek, we always find.
