This book of poetry brings you the journey of a life lived in turbulent times. Its many stories are distilled from personal experience, honed and deepened into the shape and rhythm of poetry. The arc of this life begins with the child who has no fear of bombs — war being the only way of life she has known — but is afraid that she might reveal a dangerous secret. Or get a hole in her stocking. Or maybe get served her own pet bunny in a stew. The journey continues through years of dislocations, when the struggle to keep afloat is all — when the quest is survival of a recognizable self. And sooner or later in anyone's life there's a choice which has to be made: to attain and then sink into comfort, or to continue the journey, seeking freedom from the strands trailing out of the dark distant past, binding and confining, seeking what joy there is in life, on the path of becoming an Elder.
