Life abounds in subtle contradictions. In this work, the author explores some of those contradictions through a celebration of faith, family and friendships. Muzzy's poems offer a refreshing message of hope, centered in faith in God and faith in the human spirit. The author has drawn on his many years of association with monastic communities and the Benedictine way of life to offer an alternative to the relentless demands of secular life with its focus on the self. Just as Elijah heard the sound of God in "a tiny, whispering sound", readers today can still hear that same comforting voice in the encounters and contradictions of everyday life as experienced by the author.
