Evolve! brings you people and ideas on the cutting edge of change opening the shells of the past to move our culture into the now.
We are all in great need of sustainable ideas for change. The arts and evolving consciousness are how we are bringing that change to the culture at large.
This show will bring you the wise, the foolish and the heart-based to help us meet the challenges of the times we are in.
Today I will be sharing my own poetry and writing from my most recent books. Mosaic, New and Collected Poems, is my newest edition from Blue Bone Books. Filled with poems from the past 30 years, ones that have been read at Ceremonies for the Virginia Tech Survivors Bench dedication, and for weddings, funerals and birthdays, this book has memories, stories and personal growth evidenced throughout.
David Denny, Author of "Some Divine Commotion" has said, Robin White Turtle Lysne's Mosaic is a book of tenderness, awe, and depth. Lysne explores the natural world in the manner of the mystic. With a keen eye and open heart, she communes with wolf, owl, raven, and cat. Her poems reach deeply into relationships between family members, friends, and lovers. Throughout this vast collection, Lysne's brave poems explore the joys of a life richly lived and challenge us to do the same.
I am the author of 6 books, with a novel and memoir in progress. Dancing Up the Moon, Sacred Living, (both published by Conari Press) and Heart Path, and Heart Path Handbook and Poems for the Lost Deer, and Mosaic, are all published by Blue Bone Books, Santa Cruz are my works. Sit back during this busy holiday season and listen to some down to earth poetry. It will stir your heart and help you stay in the moment.
