This thing I have, gifted to me from Ireland, has been a delicious joy and a nightmarish terror. It, this thing, took me into people?s hearts and homes and dreams?and not only human people. Tree and plant families; rock Elders; animal parents and infants; bees and birds and every flighted and crawling thing as well. What a wonder is this thing! Do you like mysteries that tweak your curiosity, stories you want to read again and again so they reveal what is invisible to the humdrum world? Grandmother Moon Wonders is a short story collection that travels forward into the future and also way back into the past. The characters may be Irish, Indian, or even from Atlantis. You might find a part of yourself in some of them. Certainly you will be aroused to ask questions of your own journey. The majority of these stories feature death in some way. This is not to be morbid but to instead reveal the magic in endings. From endings come new beginnings?if we let them. We simply must overcome fear to create new life. When we accept that we do not create because of fear, we can empty our preconceived notions and embrace the shadow. There is wonder in letting go, becoming empty, because only when we are empty can we again be filled.
