Sample of my book, God’s Children

 

Dear Readers:

I am in the final production stages of my book, God’s Children. The Flip Book below is a link to get a glimpse and a sample of the book before it is released. The book is nearly thirty pages long, so I have a little more editing to do before the final version. Because of the images, it may take a minute for the pictures to load on your computer. For sure, there are no blank pages…so be patient for the images to upload. I know many of us are struggling at this time and each family has their own story to tell, during this pandemic.

If you recently subscribed to my blog, this book project began in September of 2019.  I was unsuccessful in raising money for the book, with the exception of one donation. I am in a hard place, since I want to offer this book for free, however, the reality of real hardship is there. I was able to bypass the costs of printing the book by doing an online version, which at this time is actually the best way to go. My daughter joined in and provided the illustrations, which I am super beyond proud of her. I have enjoyed writing these poems tremendously and I feel blessed to have been able to work/study with some of the finest poets while at graduate school, so it is my pleasure to announce the book is nearly finished. This Children’s Book is for all ages. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy the sample.

So many Yours, Kate

retraction

Some of us just want
to be praised, while some
just need faithfulness –
others endless hugs
will do, the “I love you”

others want to be
the boss, the leader –
many want the power.
So rare the one that
just wants to give
rather than receive

an offering

 

I have included a link to a youtube video of Gregorian chant. I have been thinking about what I could share that could be both uplifting, peaceful and healing. I found this to be all of those in addition to more. It reaches the octaves of light –

on a side note the word Octave is actually also the name of the first stanza/movement of the Sonnet and the second/last stanza of the Sonnet is the Sestet. If you are overwhelmed with all that is happening in the U.S. with COVID-19, or looking for something to distract yourself and you like learning about new things, I suggest you check it out on Wiki. It’s pretty neat; search the word, Sonnet. Once you understand the Form of the Sonnet and the mechanics of it your experience of reading a Sonnet may change. Finally, for those really interested in the Form of the Sonnet, the transition from the Octave to the Sestet is probably the most important transition.

Here are the beautiful Nuns of St. Cecilia’s Abbey, with the link:
