it was amazing

In her newest book, Dreaming My Animal Selves, imparted in both English and French, poet and actress Hélène Cardona opens for humanity a vision of our place within creation, our deepest memory, and the divine mystery that surrounds us at all times. Fully embracing this openness in each word and verse that flows across the pages, in poems arising from her being. An openness that will transform our own perceptions of how we are so closely interconnected with one another, the world, and creation itself.

With a master artist's hand, the poet paints for the viewer images as vivid as any painting by Van Gogh or Chagall, drawing upon their images of light and purity that unveil the beauty before us, arising from the hidden in-between "thin places" where we feel and come to know life fully. She helps us to see beyond our normal everyday vision, into an astonishing world that is surrounded by beauty and light, understanding both in the mystery of a single moment. Her words reclaim for us the perfect sight found within our own imaginations and spiritual being, the human psyche.

In reading these poems I am reminded of something a friend once told me. That each artist must form a new language in every work of art they create. This is true, we all speak in different tongues, and yet, it is through the voice of the human heart we come to know and be known by others and within creation. Dreaming My Animal Selves captures this feeling, this divine dance in a wonderful choreography of words and images.
