“I wonder the wonder, freedom of freedoms,
play for you nightly and sing in the rain.
I pray for your ghosts to let you off lightly,
lessen and get rid of your terrible pain.”
Welcome to today’s guest post, from Frances Wasserman-Bildner, promoting her new book, Expressions of an Artist: The Whole Shebang
The publisher describes the book this way:
“This book is not a novel, nor a book of short stories.
It is a collection of writings and paintings.
It encompasses the human condition by covering topics such as love, loss, living, fear, political, outsider and belonging.
Each piece of writing is written automatically and quickly. The writing actually writes itself and the author is a vehicle for her work. The paintings are done in the same way. There are no preconceived ideas in either paintings or writings.
Although the work is produced this way, it does touch the subjects that we are all concerned with. This is because the artist/author is a product of the human condition and will therefore hold these subjects in her subconscious.
Some of the work is quite dark, all of it is filled with energy and emotion and an appreciation of life in all its facets.
The book has been collated into these topics by a reader. One can easily dip in and out or read it cover to cover.”
