Living was not lost on us for the island's millennia spoke, its nooks and crags murmuring ...

There are stories being whispered around us, if we but listen. Murmurings is a collection of poetry that draws upon the experiences of a lifetime spent traveling the world, reflecting on philosophy and the spirit, and listening deeply. The poems express singular moments in time--Walt Whitman strolling in Prospect Park, mulling over a line of poetry; Monet gazing upon swirls of water lilies with eyes made fuzzy by cataracts; an ancient nun, smiling and chanting through smoky drifts of incense. Rich in details, Murmurings will draw you in, fill your senses, and let you imagine yourself in another place ... in another time.
