Description

Deeply personal, these are words of hope and encouragement, trimmed and polished from larger prose works, and mingled beautifully with inspirational images. They will trigger a resonance with the inner chords of assurance that are our ideal state of heart. The least of things - a scent, a kind word, a note of gratitude - so often unbinds that force within us, and catches us quite by surprise. This is a book that will do just that. From a review on the First Edition: "This is spiritual writing at its very best. Simple. Heart felt. Human. Laced with the divine. It is an expression of love from stranger to stranger. Inviting us to become genuine neighbors. The spiritual journey is always home. Home is where we find the real Self. It is the place where we feel free to be ordinary. Where we can claim and name the ugly bits. Where we know we are beloved beyond measure. Robert's psalms take us home. Back to where we belong. Back to where we can begin to lead wondrous and authentic lives. Savor each of these pieces slowly. Sip them like fine wine. Rest in their embrace. This will be that little book which haunts and inspires you in a big way." W.B. Grimbol Author: The Grace of Hope, and Complete Idiot's Guide to Spirituality for Teensshow more

About Robert Ott

The author is uniquely suited to present the beauty of nature in writings and images, with sensitivities refined by education in landscape architecture. His work can be found in "Endless Horizons" (Eber & Wein), and available in print on Amazon. Online, his most personal writings are posted at www.ttorus.net. Book page samples can be found at FaceBook/AGiftOfEncouragement. He works now in solar energy design on Long Island, and his professional writings appear in many environmental reports, corporate newsletters, and company blogs. Robert has always been available for music ministries, sharing the stage intermittently with evangelists, pastors and gifted performers in the venue of contemporary Christian music, seeking always to uplift and free the human spirit. "Working in our digital culture, where rapid text and images are always inextricably tied, I recently began work on this series, where EVERY page included imagery, drawn from my portfolio, or from google images. In this milieu, words and images must elicit complementary emotional responses. It requires brutal editing, down to the very core and substance of originally lengthy works, until only the juice remains. The response has been unfailingly encouraging."show more
