The inspired poetry in this beautiful full-color art book begins with one stanza, one line:

Life is a strange dream.

Each consecutive poem adds one stanza and one line each stanza:

Now is the eternal moment,
and only consciousness can know itself.
Creation’s evolutionary impulse is the desire
of life to love and love to life.

These nine poems celebrate a spiritual passage through the challenges of life’s circuitous happenstance. The various artworks span a number of years in the artist’s lengthy career.

The art and poems are divinely inspired gifts that are meant to be shared.
