Rodney Evan Bohen
A mesmerizing and close to the bone escapade of words and heart!
A dramatic and magical journal of heart. Painted and written in letter-format, a stirring, powerful, and empowering voyage in self discovery and raw honesty that mirrors the hearts of each of us.
A rare heart, a tattered soul, wilted courage, and hope dimly lit,
But hope sparked only, In tiny Firefly fashion and traced form, when he grasped and clutched pen to hand!
Both penetrating and close to the bone, "Letters To Carla" jolts and awakens the searching and alert soul.
A grand and rare portrait of attempted honesty and rediscovery, a triumphant account of the human spirit to rise again, from the dust of complete and utter defeat, abandonment and betrayal,
his secular savior, and last hope.... his pen in hand, yes, the very one he abandoned and discarded in his youth now gone.
Rodney's tale and road back from his "Humpty Dumpty" fall, he in wilted courage and dimmed hope, etches upon tear stained parchment, his only friend, hoping to be remembered by someone, someday, somewhere in time...
enjoy the journey.......
Each letter is a story. Letters to Carla encompasses the story of one man's journey and life undressed. One man, lost, broken, stripped of all; forced to undress his heart and discover it in the same breath, by traversing a myriad of themes and places in the heart. This caravan of heart invites each reader to travel with the author and explore a source of truth, to share a legacy of words, bequeathed in love offered and opened, seasoned with humorous insight, dream chasing, adorned in childlike wonderment. Rodney tenderly tugs at each of us, animated by his desire that we hold his heart, while discovering our own.Here is renewed hope; an account of betrayal survived. A man's desperate attempt to etch his own epitaph, is penned to the only one he felt still cared and could be trusted; Carla, his exquisite childhood companion.
