Marvin R. Hiemstra (former editor of the Bay Area Poets Seasonal Review and author of Poet Wrangler):
“… a subtext of compassion and joy … sublime statements that put us in our place and, happily, our place in the Universe is a sublime one … the best espresso poet/philosopher I know … [with a] focus on that intangible poetic heart beat.”
Bill McKibben (author of The End of Nature and founder of 350.org):
“… a good credo for making some change in this strained age. These poems are full of good lines and good ideas!”
Julia “Butterfly” Hill (author of Legacy of Luna and founder of Circle of Life):
“… beautiful, poignant and powerful …”
Penny Livingston (founder of the Regenerative Design Institute):
“[a] beautiful and inspiring book of poems. Reading them is like drinking fresh spring water.”
This collection of poems represents the work of over 40 years of fine-tuning language and presentation. It deals with a broad spectrum of subject matter, but maintains the common thread of a deep concern for the fate of mankind. Throughout the work, the importance of community spirit and cooperation, both with other humans as well as with mother nature, takes front seat. These poems aim to be inspirational and instructional with echoes of themes also dealt with by authors like Wendell Berry. It also serves as a poetic testimonial to the principles of Permaculture and to the urgent need to find new ways of relating to each other and to our environment.
