In this dynamic and timely statement about biological and spiritual life, readers are treated to refreshing observations of daily life interwoven with this elder’s persistent curiosity about the nature of the Universe. It is put together in an episodic and anecdotal fashion in a collection of poems, each with its own character and unified in an overall rhythm. It portrays a satirical, a down to earth, and a heavenly attitude toward life all in one. In it is an insight to the Creative Mind and what the knowledge of its working principle could mean to our health and well being and to our associations in an expanding consciousness of our particular species as males and females in the total field of Universal Being.
And it is here that she wishes to acknowledge the importance of her artist husband’s remark that “most of what we call love is just a biological urge” which gave her the impetus to see in this urge the will and the willingness to live together. She still doesn’t know if this would satisfy Einstein’s question, “Is the universe friendly?” She has said, “yes,” definitely, it is even in love. The other two books in this Universal Mind Trilogy are Of One Mind and Of Things to Come, all written in non-classical poetic verse.

“I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a walk in the country, a gentle rainfall, an afternoon with a child or any of these moments we often overlook in our hurried world.” —Stuart A. Ashman, Former Director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of New Mexico
