Read full description of the books Pieces of Me:I love when people I know, great artistes, still manage to surprise and humble me. In prose, there is a certain unity and fluidity that presents itself in clear and concise terms. Beginning, middle and end. Plot and substance whittled from coal into a near flawless diamond.
Poetry, on the other hand, is different breed of cat. Poetry is the raw and ragged edges of our very souls, sharply tender and hauntingly empathic. A good poet can make you feel their words. And great poets are able to pull you so into their minds that you find yourself pondering how they knew what you were feeling or thinking all this time.
Pieces of Me opened insightful doors to both Ms. Rae and Ms. Henry that had me applauding, crying, nodding and totally "getting".
Two of Ms. Rae's offerings spoke to me so poignantly I still go back and reread them. The first, A Fraction of Failure, touches on the regret and fear, the shame and sadness memories can bring us. But even in their pain, they are ideals to cling to, to remind us that the water that ever flows, we pass along, we pass along and go forward. The other , A Treasure Revealed, nails home the point that we can't stop trying. No matter what. All we want, all we dream, is right there, at our fingertips. We ARE the treasure we're seeking in life..happiness is within us.
Have You Ever Gone A Day by Ms. Henry really rooted in me. Even in a crowd of people, we can often feel alone and awash in feelings of separation although life is spinning around us. Days turn into weeks. Months. Years. The numbing pain of being a hollow automaton while wearing the mask of cheer. I felt it to my bones and recognized I have definitely felt that way a time or two.
A Nerd's Paradise by Ms. Henry had me smiling and chuckling. I fly my geek flag pretty high every day and it was wonderful to read that bit about just being "part" of with the other misfits that share our likes and happies.
I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone and everyone who doesn't mind tears mixed with laughter.
