"These poems, stories and essays speak from the voice of one who is alive in the world.  Marian Kelner's intuitive connection to animals breathes a kind of broad attention into the rest of her reality, so what we encounter while reading is a life closely lived, with humor and poignancy, with a willingness to see, be seen, to be.  Such open-heartedness can give us all new courage."

Thanks." Michael P.      

"I have been reading Marian Kelner's book of writings. I find her work quite touching. I especially like the little essays. They make me wish for a quieter life, closer to the natural world...Since I'm continuing in the healing process, it remains very relevant." B.F.
