When You Look Up is the title of a series of three poetry books that reflect part of my HERO’S JOURNEY. Vol. 1 often shares the shadow self, as described in Debbie Ford’s book, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers. According to Ford, everyone has a shadow side, and we must acknowledge our dark side before we can bring forth the light in ourselves and in others.
When You Look Up: Selection of Poems Vol. 1 is now available as both a print book and e-book on Amazon.
My plan is to publish an audio book of Vol. 1 in 2015 along with the e-book and print book of Vol. 2. Vol. 2 contains poetry that leans toward the light. In 2016, the audio book for Vol. 2 and the e-book and print book of Vol. 3 will be published. Vol. 3 embraces the light more fully.
During my HERO’S JOURNEY, I find myself all alone for the first time in my life. Soon after I hear Dr. Wayne Dyer speaking on PBS. He helps me intentionally pull myself up from a very low place through his book, The Power of Intention. Dr. Dyer influences me in a great way. Another author, Mike Dooley, shows me through his writing that we create much of what we experience in life through our thoughts, beliefs and actions. I learn how to purposefully create a more content and fulfilling life by changing the way I think. My writing is based on this journey to joy, as are my WIN (Walking In Nature) WALKSHOPS.
