"Carrie Newcomer is an alchemist. With words, music and soul-deep creativity, she transforms everyday conversations and ordinary experiences into something precious and rare. The title she gave this book 'The Beautiful Not Yet: Poems, Essays and Lyrics'- names her secret, I think: she sees the beauty of everyday life before it comes into view, sees it before the rest of us do. Beyond Life's broken facades, she manages to get a look at what Thomas Merton called the 'hidden wholeness, ' then shows us what she's seen so we can see it too. her work has been a great gift of inspiration and encouragement to me. I know it will be a gift to you." -Parker J. Palmer (author of "Let Your Life Speak," "The Courage to Teach," and "Healing the Heart of Democracy.
