This work is dedicated with all my love to Daisy.
Her warmth taught me love, her gift of patience taught me to search my heart for patience with others, her Soul taught me strength equal to compassion, and through her love and guidance I learned to reach for my World.
Timeless. Quality. “A keeper”
Rising Sparrow Press returns to quality in book printing presenting Dear Daisy in traditional hardcover, rich earth-tone simplicity.
Dear Daisy, nonfiction, reads as life is presented day-to-day and by seasons.The author, a gifted storyteller invites the reader into the world and relationship between a Colored illiterate Migrant Woman sharing her wisdom with a boss man’s child under cherry and apple trees during the early 1960's. Daisy, an Angel on Earth years later mystically reappears an Angel from Heaven to guide the grown child on her pathway back Home. Dear Daisy tells a story 2000 years old yet reminds us how challenges continue to play out and that we each contribute to writing the story. As the story begins, the author caught in a personal struggle of survival under conditions felt oppressive, writes to Daisy.As the reflective search for self and path unfolds, the 9-11-01 story strikes as a Holy War between extremists of Nations.Before the dust settles, 10-28-01 brings world chaos personal.Living the aftermath, the author struggles to forgive and declares through writing an Epistle as part of her emancipation pathway that violence as a rightful expression and worship of God is not the God of her faith.
Childhood is nothing more than, absolutely nothing less than, the courage to discover for the first time with innocence and openness, the faith and passion to explore the next, and the inner wisdom to sense the value of each moment along the path.
