Description
O, spread thy wings and fly to wondrous places! The winds shall take thee to undiscovered spaces where hearts dance to songs of delight sung by the spirits of life. Spirit, rise! You are about to fly to a world of dancing hearts, singing spirits, with infinite love from life, in the treasure trove of Waking Spirit. Swing to the melodies as the essence of the prose and poetry, including 102 beautifully written haiku of nature wonders and delightful animals, awakens your soul. The inspirational quotes in A Moment with Shirley, and autobiographical tales, such as I'm Not Disabled--I'm Ultra-Abled, shine with the author's invincible spirit and precocious wisdom, empowering you to take flight. Many songs have been left unsung, their tales all untold. The melodies were never formed, with words all but spoken. Do not let the same misfortune befall your spirit. Sing your song while it is young. Let those melodies travel far and wide, and when you do, prepare to embrace the sky.
