About the Book

The author, Martin A. Lopez, (self), is a late-in-life father who wondrously transformed when his children arrived in his life. He changed from a compassionless pawn of the polluters, oblivious consumer, part of the throw-away culture, suffering from severe nature-disconnect, and blind to the environmental devastation happening to humanity. Through his children, he became filled with a mountainous emotional connection with them, and ultimately, to humanity and nature. At the same time, he became inspired to take action to fight for nature. This journey of metamorphosis includes poems, personal essays about nature and an analysis about solutions. He candidly identifies the villains and ‘saints’ destroying our children’s future and gives us a moral and a scientific perspective. He provides a poetic approach for our teachers to educate about the environmental disaster. He further provides an understandable approach to saving our planet. Glimpsing Heaven is an inspired father’s unique portrait of parenthood, eye-opening love, and the world’s environmental challenges.
