Description

This collection of song lyrics encompasses: a Collection From the Karma Bank, Still Wide Awake in the Now, Capturing the Glow, Beginning to Imagine Better, and Following by Listening. They are tales, tides and twinkling lights - tunes telling stories of warmth and sun, city and sand, paths that lead, and the coins we can keep in the Karma Bank. Spirit's been bypassed for sorrow, dreaming of a better tomorrow ... They are also evocative songs about living in this time, seeking serenity, and appreciating what we have. They are additionally about going after beauty so that it's a part of our space.

You can access recordings of Chiemi's songs online.

With the pandemic, we have experienced world trauma in an unprecedented way. One hopes that we've learned something. As we re-emerge after months of lockdown, can we begin to imagine better? Not just for ourselves but the future of everyone? Do we see differently?

And finally, at the crux of creativity, these words are ultimately about following by listening, trying not to get in the way, and reflecting things back because they are bigger than you, just (hopefully) adding your own insight so that they can go back out into the world.

All proceeds of this publication have been directed to the Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC) in Boston, which, builds homes, empowers families and strengthens communities.

A Note From the Publisher

The version uploaded on NetGallery is my manuscript because the software would not accommodate my e-book pdf due to the large amount of color photos. If you would like my to send you a print version on the book, I would be happy to do that if you email me at Ischroffner@verizon.net and let me know where it should be sent. Thank you!

Before I start the review I need to say, thank you to the author for sending me a print version of the book. All because the file was to big for Netgalley. A HUGE thank you!!!

This book is a wonderful read and I loved it to pieces!! The poetry were actual songs. Even though I wish I was not dead just to listen to the music and the feeling the author is feeling. The poems are beautiful and very well written..
The pictures in the book are so look beautiful. The art is also very beautiful. The pictures make the author a model for music. Beautiful soul shows within the photos.

I received a free copy of the book and is voluntarily writing a review
