Banyen's Description: 

My goal is to live the truly religious life and express it in my music. —John Coltrane

In The Heron Dance Book of Love and Gratitude, Roderick MacIver uses text and pictures to encourage readers to discover that “all-transcendent meaning” in their daily lives. This wise and comforting book celebrates the open heart and the beauty and mystery that surround us through a wide array of voices and perspectives. MacIver weaves inspirational poetry and prose with his shimmering nature watercolours to create a book that invites readers to discover—and honour—love and gratitude.

These beautiful quotes from men and women span time and geography, but share a sense of hard-won wisdom. Henry Miller finds unexpected late-life solace in embracing the simple quality of trust. Gabriel García Márquez muses, “If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more.” Helen Keller says, “God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower.” Visually very satisfying, this jewel of a book is equally rewarding when sampled or read cover to cover as a respite from the pressures of modern life.

Roderick MacIver is a Canadian-born watercolor artist who founded Heron Dance (www.herondance.org), a nonprofit organization that celebrates the human connection to nature through art and words.
