Here are a few lines from one of the poems in this book "Looking Backwards At Your Life".....
"Only you have the power to surrender the mind's chatter.
Only you can master the skills of loving yourself.
When looking backward at your life,
Embrace it and surrender all of life's eternal strife."
This book tells the story before the story. Soon after writing "Presence...A Tapestry Of Love Through The Eyes Of The Soul," I realized I hadn't told the story of how I came to be with the love of my life and our first years together.
In the beginning of the first book, my husband dies in a plane crash, leaving me three months pregnant and with a three year old son to raise by myself. A tapestry metaphor was used to weave stories and lessons from my life. When writing the second book "Blank Canvas 2013" I used the art of painting as a metaphor to create the rest of the story.
