About the Book

Book of Life: Poems for the Journey is a book of poetry that tells a story—a human story and a divine story. Many themes are visited, including writing, creativity, nature, relationships, loving ourselves, purpose, surrender, soul, change, grief, awakening, empowerment, and more. The poems showed up as the poet stepped into a life that allowed room for them. Diffi cult decisions were made so as to keep the pen from running dry. Grief and growing pains made way for risk, newness, adventure, and spontaneity, and these things subsequently made for something to write about. The writings are fueled by the poet’s fi re and are intended to light the divine spark within the reader. Often, the poems show up as a pondering and then come full circle to a resolution of sorts, one that can potentially serve us all as we journey, always, Home.

About the Author

Amy Sue Adams is a poet, writer, teacher, facilitator, artist, activist, life coach, and healer. She loves traveling, dancing, hiking, swimming, bicycling, and amateur photography. A tried-and-true Dark Night of the Soul experience, over a decade ago now, is what brought Amy back to herself, back to her writing and back to her purpose. Humaira showed up just about that time to infuse both Amy’s writing and her life, and she continues to do so to this day. It’s a little unorthodox, to say the least, but it is what has occurred, and honoring what has occurred has become life-saving, life-enhancing, and life-giving for Amy. While all has not been peaches and cream, even in Georgia where Amy was guided for a bit, all has been Alive, and that Aliveness is what Amy has learned to follow, even and especially when it feels as if it has completely gone away, never to return. This book, Amy’s first book, all of her other writings, and her life lived have become the fruits of her labor, and it is her pure and heartfelt wish and desire that following this—at times elusive—pull serves others in the way Amy has been served.
