“Dancing on Uneven Ground” by Barbara Raphael

Eskova Enterprises is pleased to announce and celebrate the release of Barbara Raphael’s new book of poetry, Dancing on Uneven Ground.  

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Barbara Raphael’s deeply personal poetry faces grief and aging, nature and love head on. Dancing on Uneven Ground reveals her depth of feeling through poems that give voice to a life rich with nuance.  Her landscape encompasses the experiences of loss as she moves through the shifting shades of grey in this not so black and white world.

Dancing on Uneven Ground celebrates, weeps for and touches ever so lightly the life cycles in our day to day moments of hope, loss, despair and love. In these poems, Barbara Raphael allows us to glimpse a vulnerable well of insight and feeling living in the heart of a strong and independent woman who is compelled to love, and therefore to see. May we all be blessed with such a friend.”    – Ann Mortifee

Author, Barbara Raphael

ATTARS by Carol Sill

“I’m happy to celebrate and support the release of Attars, and to acknowledge the brilliant writing of Carol Sill, the editor of my book, In Love With The Mystery.” – Ann Mortifee

ABOUT THE BOOK: Carol Sill’s new book is the story of an essence gatherer living in solitude in a driftwood cabin in the dunes. She enters the magic transformation of mythopoetic experience, and is shown the way to compile a personal Book of Secrets.
But when imagination and intuition meet in the dunes, things aren’t always as they seem. Drifting sands cover and uncover events, treasures, and memories. She is challenged by her history and grasps for balance in the “live and let live” world of the California Dunites.
Metaphysics, alchemy, poetics and mysticism all play together in her private imaginaire, as life opens to a far wider horizon. With support from her friend Cath, and inspiration from Ella and Gwyneth, the essence gatherer soon finds a personal path that is for her alone.

“AS I READ THROUGH CAROL SILL’S NEW BOOK, I BECAME DEEPLY INTRIGUED WITH THE DOWNRIGHT ORIGINALITY OF ATTARS. I COULDN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT IT LONG AFTER IT WAS DONE. YOU WON’T HAVE READ ANYTHING QUITE LIKE IT BEFORE. IT IS BRILLIANT AND WISE.” – ANN MORTIFEE, CM

Author, Carol Sill

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Carol Sill is a writer, editor, and publisher living in Vancouver, BC, with the abstract artist James K-M and their beagle, B. She is a grandmother of two, and has been engaged in the practical application of ancient spiritual wisdom for over four decades.
