Islands of Light: Expressions of Faith of One Man's Journey (Hardcover)
Over the years, author Everett Graffeo has discovered a poet buried deep within his spirit. As he jotted down thoughts on scraps of paper, backs of programs, or on pages in the back of his date book, the words that appeared surprised him and satisfied a need at the time. He set them aside-and when he took them up again, they breathed new life into his thoughts. Graffeo now presents a collection of poetry representing not the boast of a man with an unbroken string of successes, but the confession of one who has experienced both strength and weakness. These verses and the emotions they evoke are intended to serve as islands of light surrounded by a vast ocean of question-filled darkness. This light, discovered on the atolls of experience, seeks to bring understanding and meaning to Graffeo's journey and to ours as humans. Encountering out-of-the-way places from all around the world, this journey in poetry offers an expression of faith as it explores one man's thoughts, personality, personal struggles, biases, worldview, heart, and soul.
