Description


"Beauty Whispers, A Celebration of the Beauty and Mystery of Nature" by Lorrie Sarafin, is a compilation of ten awe inspiring true stories of synchronicity, serendipity, and manifestation. The book is full color, 70 pages and contains photos that have spanned some 20 years of her photography. Sarafin came across the Native American Flute via R. Carlos Nakai and a 1993 music concert at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts. She immediately fell in love with the sound of the instrument and three years later was able to buy a flute from a store in Old Town Scottsdale. She took the flute out into the Sonoran desert and learned how to play it while hiking solo and observing nature. Sarafin subsequently released two self-produced music albums (CD and digital format) - "Second Wind" and "Many Paths." "Many Paths" garnered a #1 rating from broadcasters across the country. "Beauty Whispers"  will leave you with the belief that there is SOMETHING MORE out there.


Many of those who have bought the book have sent to me their thoughts: 

--  Heartfelt images with words like visual haiku.

--  It is your love letter to the desert. 

--  Just received your book - it’s beautiful, congrats!

--  I was so taken back when I opened your carefully packaged gift. It was almost like reliving my past again.

--  All the desert images grow my yearning to return to that magnificent place. Love the stories. Love the images. Love the quotes. Flesh and Stone particularly moved me. 

--  My “Whispers” arrived yesterday -what a beautiful book of words and your “vision” of the world thru your photos. I will enjoy it for years.

--  Truly an amazing book, Lorrie. I am so glad I got two, because it will make a special gift, too. I am drifting through it, a page or two at a time, to savor the beauty and the messages. -- Beautiful book!

--  Been savoring it small daily doses to make the first time through last longer! Beautiful book!! 

--  The book is absolutely gorgeous.  I love your photography and stories.

--  It's truly beautiful, the sort of thing you want to leaf through indolently, taking time to study the photos and savor the stories. (The story of the slot canyon really got to me this time.) 

--  At this crazed time especially, we can use all of the positive efforts of artists we can, and any reminders of the deep contact we have with the natural world that is so quietly miraculous on a daily basis. 

--  A most wonderful book! Now in a special place here inside our house. You have created images to be remembered for a long time. 

--  I think it turned out fantastic. You should be quite proud of your work.
