The Mythic Journey gives us back to ourselves. It celebrates the mysteries of life and a relationship with the witness who has always been a part of who we are and who gives meaning to our lives. Think of the following pages as a Mythic Story that is but one of the billions of stories lived on our beautiful planet. Imagine your story, and wonder what myth it is creating.
A Spiritual Memoir
Last year I found a photograph of my great-grandmother as a young woman. I had never seen her before. Staring at her face, I tried to find some familial likeness, but mostly, I wondered who she was and what she believed in. I knew then that I was writing this memoir for my grandchildren and for the generations that will come after them. I want to leave them a legacy, the story of an ancestor whose blood is mingled with theirs. There is a saying in Hawaii that I love: "We are the descendants of our ancestors, and the ancestors of our descendants." Sharing my heart with the past and future generations of my family is an honor. God bless them all.
A Poetry Collection
A 26 page collection of 17 intimate poems by author Lisa Barstow, selected from her work over the past decade. "Writing poetry has often been self-revealing, as indeed all my writing is. I find when I'm able to reach deep within myself and express those innermost feelings on the page, I can best connect with my heart and, deeper yet, my soul."
