About the Book

Amazingly succinct and timely poetry uplifts and inspires the reader to feel more powerful in today's unsettling world. This is an eclectic, free flowing, high-spirited volume of deep insights and spiritual challenges including interfaith observations and an inspiring pilgrimage to Lourdes. Included in this collection are descriptions of a Darshan with Mother Meera, an ode to the mystical mountain, Montserrat, a hymn of praise for Mary Baker Eddy and a transformational evening at Carnegie Hall, listening to the works of composers sentenced to death during World War II. Chance encounters with strangers and poignant everyday miracles give the reader indelible impressions of truth, joy, compassion and humility. A 'must-read' for anyone devoted to becoming part of the solution rather than contributing to the problems we are, as a world community, experiencing at this time in history.
