“If you believe it, it is.”
Adele Kenny, A Lightness, a Thirst, or Nothing at All: Poems

“We who choose to surround ourselves
with lives even more temporary than our
own, live within a fragile circle;
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we would still live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan.”
Irving Townsend

“The greatest honor we can give Almighty God is to live gladly because of the knowledge of his love.”
Julian of Norwich

“Prayer is the raising of the mind to God.
We must always remember this.
The actual words matter less.”

Adele Kenny Dear Friends,

I'd be really grateful if you'd vote for the cover of my new book (WHAT MATTERS) in the Goodreads Best Cover for Fall/Winter 2011. The book is at #112 as I write this, and I need a lot more votes. So ... if you don't mind, please consider casting a vote for WHAT MATTERS by Adele Kenny.

http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/14...

The cover image, by the way, is Pre-raphaelite painter and poet Dante Rossetti's "Beata Beatrix." My publisher purchased right to use the image. The original painting is housed in London's Tate Gallery.

Many thanks,
Adele

Adele Kenny Hi Jesse,

thanks for your message. It's nice to meet you here on Goodreads.

I've added your book SONG OF GEORGE: PORTRAIT OF AN UNLIKELY HOLY MAN and will order from Amazon this week. I wonder if you might do me a favor and add my newest book WHAT MATTERS as a To-Read on your list? I'd be very grateful!

All the best,
Adele

Jesse Hanson Dear Adele, Thank you for including me among your friends here on goodreads. I'm very impressed by your prolific work in getting these many books finished. I have added The Kite & Other Poems from Childhood. I want to wish you all success in all your endeavors.
I hope you won't mind if I ask you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man, for your reading list. It's fiction but is inspired by events from my life.
Namaste, jesse
