"An absolutely brilliant and singularly indescribable book, Fish Eyes for Pearls is an extraordinary journey into a woman's life. One of the bravest, most unique and compelling self-examinations I have ever read- I was blown away!"- Henry Jaglom
The phrase 'fish eyes for pearls' is coined in an ancient book of internal alchemy, prompting the question, in this world veiled in illusion, how does one discern the precious from the common or worthless? And then, how might the ordinary be transformed into something extraordinary?
Lead on a mission to gather and liberate ghosts, the artist navigates the thorny, humbling landscape of relationships, society, and the unseen realms with canvas, words, and camera lens, she turns life into art and art into a life.
This memoir completely captivated me!
This story is an invite in an artist life and details her perspective and experiences on love, art, and how we are all connected.
As expected, there is laughter and there is sadness as the journey is exposed.
Yes! I felt this book was skillfully written and the detailed undertakings are approached cleverly, courageously and artistically. We see fables, songs, recipes, and intimate poetry which intersects with a love of color and fluidity.
There are portions where the concentration is on natural and spiritual conditions which allow a better understanding of the choices and sacrifices that are made. And it's fascinating to see if and when each challenge will be overcome and what opportunities this leads to.
I received this amazing memoir through the generosity of the author for an honest review.
