This book of poetry was begun in the anguish of the UK referendum that gave birth to Brexit, the putative abandonment by the UK of its leading role in the European Union, possibly the best international body for peace and prosperity that was ever conceived and given life. As this goes to press, there is still no conclusion, no settlement of the upheaval caused by that wrong-headed political stunt by a political party more interested in usurping control than in running a nation for the common good.The book developed through three years of personal and political anguish at the undemocratic horrors being perpetrated on the British people. The anguish, however, is tempered with a more sanguine look at the human condition, offering sky hooks of hope and sparkling streams of possibility for the future, often anchored in the past. Or at least, in one woman's past, informed by her life in three countries, and her passion for ensuring the best of all worlds for all people. She does what she can...and sometimes, that is verbal or pictorial art.A portion of the income from this book will be donated to humane organizations worldwide, as the author/artist identifies needs.
