Greetings to my fellow bloggers, authors and book lovers in the blogosphere.
I hope you all enjoyed the new Electric Eclectic book I featured last week. If you havenâ€™t already done so, please go out and get your copy of Fount! By Karen J Mossman and be sure to leave an honest review. This week, we are moving to a different genre for our book feature.
This weekâ€™s featured book is entitled One with Willows, written by Joan Myles.
One with Willows is a collection of spiritually playful poems which invites you toÂ step out of the everyday world, to catch your breath, even to catch a glimpse of what really is.Â There is magic in light that turns hummingbirds into rubies. Wonder and delight wait for you in a garden, bid you to sit beside a young child at the piano, and may even lead youÂ to stumble upon holiness where you least expect to find it.
You will want One with Willows on your bookshelf when you need a friendly reminder that things can get better. It will sit with you on the edge of the bed when you are weary, and revive your sense of hope when you need a boost.
About the Author:
Joan Myles has always been a child of wonder as well as a spiritual seeker. When she lost her sight at the age of 12, these qualities and writing poetry saved her from despair. And whatâ€™s more, once blind, her spiritual seeking took on a deeper, richer dimension. No longer was Divinity somewhere out there, hovering just out of reach. She felt God to be with her, a whisper away, a breath, a sigh, a longing inside her, an expression of wonder and delight and most emphatically, Love.
Joan earned a BA in elementary Education, a Masterâ€™s in Jewish Studies, and spent 15 years teaching Hebrew and Judaics to third through 6th graders. During that time, she also founded Yismehu, a non-profit organization which provided free Jewish learning to blind students nationwide via distance learning, and served as both textbook developer and instructor for 7 years.
Joan and her husband raised four children together. They currently live in Oregon, where she continues to delight in the wonders of Life Divine, and in the magic of words.
