Many thanks to everyone who has made this book possible.
...is a beautifully written, incantatory and meditative evocation of life, both of the human and natural worlds, and of light, darkness, time, infinity and transcendence. It is seamlessly unified, and "hymnal" in the spareness and musicality of its language. A masterful work, indeed. The beauty of the writing is perfectly complemented by the excellence and sensitivity of Regina Schroeder's vision and handiwork."
-Larry D. Thomas, 2008 Texas Poet Laureate
