Shadow and Substance: A Mother-Daughter Vision Questby Diana L. Fortinberry, Barbara Fortinberry
Within these pages, via poetry, are kaleidoscopic pieces in crazy dance across the sand of many worlds in the lives of two authors-mother and daughter, best friends. Together my mother and I have been shipmates through stormy seas including abuse, addiction and depression; when she passed in 1994, I felt as if I'd lost myself. Now, my mother is frequently my "ghost writer," as she has joined the other elders who ghost dance and guide me with her.
Rather than remaining invisible, I chose to share parts of myself through this book in prayer that those who suffer alone would feel less so. The spirit has two choices: to remain trapped in a prison of pain, or to walk, however falteringly, toward freedom. It has taken me fifty years to believe at deep levels that The Creator wants me to be happy, joyous and free-and that I deserve to be.
We invite you to accompany us on the healing voyage as you cast your net upon the ocean to catch the falling stars.
