Reflections on states of mind and states of heart
by Jon Meyer
Hardcover, 65 pages
As you delve into this poetic and photographic masterpiece, you are in for an inspiring double journey into the mysteries of Love and life. Outwardly you will travel through New England via the visual images of the mountain vistas, the riverbanks, and the coastlines. This stunning visual imagery captures all four seasons in New England as well as the whole diurnal and nocturnal span.
"At the same time that the photographic visual images are guiding you on this outward journey, the quintain poems in this collection will encourage you to journey inward toward the light of a mystical merging with the Reality of the Universe. This inward journey prompts the traveler to examine her or his ability to express gratitude, to help others, and to live in the present. The poems focus on sensory images which link the inner realm with the external environment."
—Hugh M. Flick, Ph.D., Current teaching faculty/scholar at Yale on Indian Epics and Bhagavad Gita
"I was charmed to see how Jon Meyer has brought his creative talents as a photographer and a poet together to reveal his epiphanies. After portraying Jon's creativity on Fictional Cafe, it was wonderful to learn he has coalesced these satori-like moments of inspiration between book covers. Look, read, feel, share."
—Jack B. Rochester; best-selling author; founder and editor-in-chief, Fictional Café
