Grapefruit Pips: An Illustrated book of weird, wonderful and wise thoughts.

by Joan C Harthan PhD




An Illustrated book of the three Ws; weird, wonderful and wise. The book contains a collection of short poems and pronouncements that tell a story about the search for the juice of life and, ultimately, a journey towards spiritual freedom. Your journey may be different but you may find some inspiration here.
Each page is a meditation on life, written using the metaphorical language of dreams. It will make you smile, it may even make you laugh, but it will also make you think about your own life and the road you are travelling.
It was birthed in a dream and inspired into publication by Yoko Ono's book 'Grapefruit'.
It is dedicated to anyone who is willing to plant grapefruit pips and see what grows.
