Paperback: $25.63
Prints in 3-5 business days
At exactly 6:14am on Friday, December 21st, 2012, we had both the Winter Solstice, which happens every year, and the Mayan End of the World, which happens less frequently. Of course, the world... More > continued turning as usual, and mankind had the same joy and discord, serenity and stress, love and jealousy that it always seems to have. These milestones serve as reminders to us that nature cycles within its patterns and that we strive to learn and grow with each new dawn. A sunset in Boston glows in tangerine and gold. A lost love echoes with poignancy after twelve long years. A trekker struggles to the top of Kilimanjaro and soaks in the beauty. An auction bidder struggles to rein in her compulsions. There are oriole chicks crying for their mother, a wife crying for help, an elderly woman remembering the ravages of World War II. A car dissolves into the wilderness of weeds, and a moon rises high over Zion. Welcome to winter, and breathe in the blessing that comes with every new morn.< Less

"I seem to be spending a lot of time here lately. It’s like an escape to me; a safe place to watch the world turn under a watercolour sky. I saw an airship take off yesterday. It was... More > raining and the sun glittered off it like scales on a fish. You just can’t appreciate Remeton from the ground; you can see so much from up here.

Adolescence follows five close friends and their families through a tough period during their mid-teen years. The city of Remeton may be different in many ways to the world that we've become used to, but people, when it comes down to the basics, are all the same. We laugh; we cry; we get angry. But we are always stronger together. Adolescence tackles some sensitive topics.< Less

More > sunset and a snoozing swan. Our poetry conveys imagery of waving corn stalks, indolent cats, the sweet smell of cinnamon and apples, an arrow of geese heading south.

Her message to all artists is this: "As James Taylor says in his song, ‘the secret of life is enjoying the passage of time’. If you’re doing something you love to do, you’re going to enjoy the passage of time."< Less
