Book Description: Bravo! I dare to describe these works as the Opus of Sandra Lyon Kramer, a collection of heart wrenching prose that tell the story of an intrinsically artistic woman; filled with her deepest emotions.
The author’s beginnings were rooted in her love of words, painting and singing. Her works read as the Psalms, flowing with a definite cadence, which foretell the secrets of a tortured soul, words hidden in the dark that made their way onto paper. There are moments of unspeakable pain combined with moments of splendor, just in time, to lift us back into moments of hope. Sandra Lyon Kramer has lived the life of a frenzied woman, overcoming personal obstacles, enduring enormous loss, with a will to survive and endure.
This is a brave Opus of strength, endurance, loss, discovery and final acquiescence. I refer to this as an Opus, with all the emotions conjured therein, Adagio to Allegro ending with a soft cadence, a beautiful canticle of self-love and acceptance.
I was awed by the quality of the author’s masterful writing skills, never pretentious in her words; eloquent in flow and form. It was a gift to behold. It was as music to my eyes and a balm to my soul. Highly recommended as extraordinary writing!
– Brenda-Lee Ranta, author of A Soul Passenger
Preface . . .
The words ‘intimidate” and “intimate” sound very similar. “Intimidate” comes from the Latin verb “timere,” which means “to fear” or “to be timid.” The word “intimate” comes from the Latin superlative “intimus,” which means “most personal” or “profound.”
You are beautiful. Don’t be afraid.
