The Sea Accepts All Rivers & other poems
About the Book
“Deeply moving . . . complex emotions and ideas are handled with disarming simplicity” John W. Gardner, Former Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare. “This is a book of wisdom in the form of poems, useful, yet delightful and even sometimes surprising. A single poem can shift thinking so everything is different from then on” Carol Pearson, author of The Hero Within. “Judy’s work is rooted in the shared soil of our lives, and her images help us understand how lovely and full of promise our common ground is. You hold a feast of insight in your hands. Read it and be nourished.” Parker J. Palmer, author of Let Your Life Speak and A Hidden Wholeness.
