“…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”-Vincent Van Gogh
Greetings! It is my great pleasure to announce the launch of Creation and the Cosmos, a wonderful anthology of both poetry and artwork inspired by nature.
From the mountains to the fields, from the forests to the sea, from the blue sky to the black expanse of space, nature surrounds us. Nature nourishes and inspires us. All too often, we become consumed by the concrete jungles of our cities, the blue glow of our technology, the whir-click-roar of our machines. All too often, paychecks and bills, hustle and bustle, to-do lists and time leech us of our spirit. And we forget the simple pleasure of sitting in silence on a park bench, or taking a walk through the woods.
Well, I suppose I can speak only for myself, but if you are anything like me, you may sometimes take for granted, or forget entirely, the grand beauty and intricate workings of the natural world.
Creation and the Cosmos is a tribute to the rich tapestry of nature. A reminder to appreciate the small things as well as the big things. A chance to reconnect with the soul of the planet we live upon. Within the pages of this book, thirty-two artists and writers from around the world help us to do just that.
This anthology contains around 40 pieces of artwork, from photography to painting, along with about 100 poems. I am incredibly honored to have some of my poetry and photography featured in this book. Creation and the Cosmos is available in paperback directly through Lulu (our distributor), as well as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The Kindle version is also available through Amazon. I’ve included some links below to these respective book-sellers.
My fellow artists and I would be absolutely delighted if you decide to purchase a copy. If you do, be sure to let me know what you think! As always, thank you, my friends, for reading.
