Heart & Stone
Heart & Stone
Heart & Stone is a book about self-discovery, of wind, and of worth, written with unsolicited honesty, and viscus honey verses that drip with silk. It is about finding indelible truth amongst the glow of a big city, blinded by the bright lights, caught in the predicament of modernity. Heart & Stone speaks to anyone that has ever felt unworthy. It is a doctrine of self-appreciation and a trail of breadcrumbs to the individual truth within us all. The poetry is textured with the thorns and harsh realities of life, side by side with oceans of subtle beauty in flowing verses. It contains both the lessons of a philosophical examination and the beauty of a symphony.
On the surface it is a story of a man walking into the desert, hoping to leave behind the inauthenticity and anxiety bursting from the city behind him, as he makes his way into the desert, for a lesson on life and self-worth taught by the wind and explained by the stars. Underneath, it is an examination of what it is like to feel alone in the crowd. It is an exposé that reveals the importance of individuality, the great desert and mountain in each of us, while at the same time ripping through the white noise of our era to examine the modern man’s continually widening transcendental relationship with nature. Take a trip away from the neon carnival that is our modern metropolis, venture into the tremendous bosom of the desert, and find yourself, in Heart & Stone.
