Embrace the Journey is an inspired collection of poetry and art that shines light on the kindred hopes of the human spirit. Its intimate expression of experiences, personal encounters, unique perceptions speaks of enduring themes of love, nature, harmony, struggles, beliefs, commitments and triumphs. Transcending cultures east and west, the author brings a voice rich in color, depth, texture, excitement and adds a multidimensionality to the readers' experience. To feel, to be alive is a mantra through this Asian American's journey. It reveals a creative spirit "deeply engaged with life with all its complexities". (Greg S. Castilla, author of 8 books). The collection includes some "powerful, mesmerizing paintings... some...artwork echo the eroticism found in Gustav Klimt's The Kiss, others reflect the universal longing of women..." (Marilen Abesamis, former staff of the Book Review, New York Times). Armed with pen, brush, imagination, the author welcomes you to engage in her journey.
