A collection of flowers
this book I have brought together a collection of my experiences
and awakening epiphanies. I have gathered each group of these
"flowers" according to kind.
the years I have used various stories to illustrate points. The
thought of writing them down so they could be enjoyed by people
who never had the opportunity to sit with me sounded like a lot
this started out, I thought there would only be about eight or
nine stories. But as I would write one story, another would come
to mind. Then just as I finally figured that I had included them
all, I would teach a class and here would pop up a story that
I had used many times.
of the stories are original, but I have picked up a couple along
the way. I have used them so much that it is very difficult for
me to determine which are mine and which are borrowed from some
unknown source. I have also included some of my personal experiences
to add to the whole potpourri.
book has been a lot of fun to put together. I hope you enjoy reading
it as much as I have enjoyed writing it!
