Everyone has a story that can enlighten if told from the right perspective. My story is of a search for peace of mind through a mental illness that began in childhood and continued most of my adult life. The spiritual conflicts of the Christian beliefs left me with despair when I was an adolescent and into my adulthood. In my case, I could not divorce the spiritual from the mental.

And because these poems, like the prevalent hexagons of the natural world--honeycombs, for instance--derive strength from their compression and their accumulation.
