Subject: A heart-opening testimony about life, love and loss. No matter what our problems and loss, the compassionate message and interpretive pastel art will renew and strengthen our Spirit, faith, divine insight and love. The unique experience gleaned from the pages will remind us of our connections to one another and our oneness.

Noteworthy: The total experience of words and drawings will open the mind’s eye to our shared Collective Unconscious. A coffee table delight and wonderful gift idea as the insightful message relates to everyone. The sagacious use of space and movement within the pastels speaks to Self what words cannot say.
