Mantras from the Great Void
In this book, Janice Josephine Carney makes us welcome into the wondrous and painful truths of a life history that is sure to make our hearts beat a bit more deliberately. Her words are simple and clear and almost deceptively easy to understand, even as she reveals some of the most profound moments in any human life. Here are luminous events of wrenching sorrow and heart-splitting joy. Janice Josephine uses a simple and clear poetic style, conversational and accessible, to invite us into her own careful exploration of her life and the events around her. Never afraid to express fiery anger, deep despair, sweet romance or a profoundly still calm, her poems present a truly complete personal experience, with a clear and compelling call to amend our own person and political behaviors often skillfully embedded in that exploration. Here is witness to the all too human ability to hurt and betray as well as to love and cherish. Read these poems and essays from a welcoming and loving soul and you will find your own spirit made richer. Toni Amato editor of Pinned down by Pronouns,
