Voice of My Soul is a a collection of poems, stories and songs resulting from a deep spiritual journey twenty five years ago. As I continued on this path, I felt a need to search for a profound purpose in life. A need to express myself from my inner voice where words could be spoken only from my hear and soul. In 1996 I was compelled to write again, but this time I felt I had something to say.
These poems brought me closer to my origins and my cultural heritage. As I wrote, I began to discover the rich life that I have been living surrounded by teachers, messengers and a wonderful family upbringing.
This project has been therapeutic for me in many ways. I lost my parents in 1998. I lost my brother four years later. I found that writing eased the pain as i focused on the fond memories of them. It also compelled me to explore other family members of the past and present.
I believe it is important to also write about the heroes who became my teachers, and friend who made a differencce in my life. The songs were written as a celebration and the stories are dedicated to some wonderful human beings.
