Overview

Facing the Sweating Horse is a collection of poems written from the perspective that the foundation of life is connection and, thus, the purpose of life is to recognize that connection. Our connectedness resides in how we share each moment, whether we notice that moment or not. 'We' means not only our fellow humans--all with the same bodies and emotions and dreams--but all of our fellow species, and the rocks and the water, the air and the light, that grace our finite days. Both lithe and wise, Facing the Sweating Horse is to face life in its most trembling, revealing form.
