What people are saying:

I have taken this Sunday morning to sit and go through your wonderful book.  The quotes are so uplifting and astounding.  As I read the quote from Schweitzer – about when the light goes out and is rekindled by another person I thought of you.  You have given me that spark.  I know I am old and past physical means to spark but I will share your spark in my way as life moves on.

Thank you so much for your art, talent, and this wonderful book.

“… tastefully done. As you know, a picture is often worth a thousand words, but many of the brief quotes in the book are also worth a thousand words.  In some ways, each page is a new world.”
