Muses of Wandering Passions is the very definition of sadness and of loss. Its undiluted mourning grips the reader: within the starkness, the sincerity of recollections in fairness to the one causing the broken heart is touching:” That is what you meant to me: a light that shone through the darkness.” (Your smile, p. 56)The book contains the pensive reflections on a life that passed, but also the effects of it in the now. It brings a test of ability to those in need; a showdown. The reader is gently guided to assess own love. It is often better to look at the self through the eyes of others.
Even though one cannot calculate happiness, there arise lessons from reading this book, such as: eternal love cannot be neutralized by separation; and: the broken heart is not powerless. One cannot fight reality; leaving does not mean stop loving; separation does not imply forgetting; mourning is not necessarily not forgiving. Even the forgiving heart may mourn; but even more, must mourn, in order to heal, finally.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was always told by other writers that for one to write a book is to always use your experiences overall and always write the book you want to read…I have kept that advice and started to write prose literature & poetry. The book is poetry and text, but it symbolizes the life or ordinary people. I am inspired by many things of the human behavior and that intrigues me to uncover what the mouth can’t speak.
