About the Book
My book “Time Lapse” is a collection of poetry that I have most recently written – mostly over the past six months. Some of it is quite personal; a few touched with a bit of humor and others focus on imagery. This collection of poetry is illustrated with my own artwork, including photographs that I have taken myself, scanned paintings and drawings and digital artwork mostly done with the paint accessory on my personal computer. My photographs were mostly taken in the woods in the back of my home – in which I have found a haven for myself and I have called “My safe space.” As I wrote this book I have lost myself in another time and place. “Out of sight Not Out of mind I see this world For what it is -” Claudia A.
