Profound insight is within the pages of this touching and enlightening collection of poems from a woman who has found the courage to face her fears and battle cancer. Ms. Thompson's work is an inspiration for anyone willing to accept themselves for who they truly are, no matter what station they are at in life. This is a must read for everyone, especially for those of us looking for the bravery to face a terminal illness or for the friends and family members of someone in this situation. It is rare to find art, warmth and such intelligence in one person's work. Ms. Thompson's work is all this and more. There are many lessons to be learned for all of us from her experiences. Ms. Thompson's words are a comfort, while at the same time, she points out how acceptance of a striking reality can enhance our journey through life. I am grateful for her experiences and her words offer hope to find the grace and courage to face challenges in my life, as she has. She has set a fine example of how we can each become who we are meant to be, no matter what our circumstance. Whether you are a poetry lover or not, a compassionate account of life's lessons are within these pages. A Must Have!

Sylvia Thompson teaches meditation, Reiki, Chakra, and Color Therapy. She has a long history of healing others but in recent months has been called upon to heal herself. When diagnosed with a catastrophic disease in 2005, she was forced to look inward for strength. The result is this beautiful book. Through her poetry she creates beauty out of illness, transforms a weed-infested garden into thriving flowers. I highly recommend this book of poetry to patients, families, and health care workers. Ms. Thompson's vision, philosophy, and compassion are exceptional.
