When You Pass Through Waters by Nicole A. Seitz
"I loved this book and I read it in short bits. I put this book so I could read it when I am not around my other books that I am working on. I would say that I laughed, I cried and it brought a smile to my face. It is an amazing book if you are goi..." Read more of this review »

When You Pass Through Waters by Nicole A. Seitz
"This collection of essays, poems, and short fiction brims with true reflections of humanity--of our relationships to water and to God, of loss and life and the funny way God often has of using the former to pour out the latter.

The artist and writer in me absolutely loved this book. Savor it. You won't want it to end. Endearing. Charming. Authentic.
Nicole liked a quote
Beyond Molasses Creek by Nicole A. Seitz
“I am in a car with Mr. Assai at the wheel. He pauses to let a cow cross the road and then manages to ease in and out of people and bicycles and rickshaws. I look at his hand gripping the stick shift. I have never learned to drive a vehicle though I have seen men driving on buses. I always like to see what people’s hands do while their eyes are on something else.
When I carve, I must look at my subject, but every now and again, when I have done something so many times, I can look away while my hands continue working. I can look away and forget I am a slave to this piece of stone. Even if it is becoming a beautiful angel with outstretched wings.
How can I love the stone and hate it at the same time? Because it is a piece of me. I know nothing else. How can the ox stand having the yoke put upon its neck day after day after day? Because it is all it has ever known. Nothing more, nothing less.”

“There are some things I guess we bury so we can get on with living. I don't think it's wrong, necessarily, just what we do to survive. It's the remembering part that's hard. Some people remember and some never have to. The blessed and the cursed.”
