In Siren of the Inner Sea the author speaks profoundly... From a distance... I marvel at the phases of the moon Charmed by the costumes of each season I watch the acts of the planetary play Never perceiving myself onstage I began asking myself what is lasting and true; irreducible to soot and cinders, more than smoke and mirrors. Standing outside of my body, on a vista beyond belief and image, I looked into the flame from my embedded wick and "saw" with unveiled vision. When I surveyed my small room, I was stricken by its resemblance to a crazy quilt stitched by Emily Dickinson, Georgia O'Keeffe, a wild-haired Bohemian wanderer, a bookworm, a feline fancier, and a quiet monk. Seeking respite in a drafty upper room by Providence, they gathered together with pocketfuls of poems; pebbles prepared to be cast in cosmic waters...circles widening. There, this cadre of characters met a Celtic siren. Faithful to the guiding spirit of this poetry collection, she helps afflicted souls on the way to Immrama. Dr. Linda L. Bielowski entreats the reader to embark on a spiritual voyage...Put your hand in my hand, in my hand in your hand while we navigate the serene and swirling inner sea. The author, Dr, Linda L. Bielowski, spent her professional life as a professor, pastoral counselor, social services administrator, and psychotherapist with a passion for serving the homeless and disenfranchised. She describes herself as a monk in the world, a siren of the inner sea.
