From the Back Cover:
Prisms is about the life of a teacher, a writer, a simple human, shared in the hybrid form of a collage essay that reflects and refracts epiphanies borne out of moments of regret, joy, tragedy, fear and love. It is a review of the colorful experiences of life and their re-assembly into something more powerful. In each segment, we come to understand ourselves, and each other, with greater compassion, kindness and grace in our own transformation.
Prisms is a literary binding and fashioning of fact with a touch of fiction, illusion, dreaming, and reimagined memory.
VanWestervelt invites you to witness a statement of existence, just like your own – unimaginable without the contribution of each hue-touched shard, that reveals an abstract map of individual evolution, illuminated through love-stained light.
Advance Praise for Prisms:
An artfully composed, complex tapestry of interwoven memories with vivid characters. Poetry, philosophy, prose. Powerful pieces that will linger in your soul and pop up later, in moments when you need to be reminded.
~Cara Moulds, Midlife Women’s Coach
Rus VanWestervelt in his, “2732 Prisms of Love-Stained Light” offers more than an essay collage of Love and Hope, it can inspire us to explore our own healing collages. Rus is a little bit of Thoreau, Matt Haig and Mark Nepo: from pain comes transcendence.
~Carol Reed, Educator, Poet, Advocate for the Arts
The intensity of Rus VanWestervelt’s writerly gaze splinters the visible world into glittering fragments that stare unflinching into light’s–and life’s–center. In the interstitial space between memory and narrativity, material melts down to immaterial, making a cathedral of the body, amplified by love and lit by memory. The undercurrent of fear and a desire for safety is a tender alchemy, a catalyst for the terror and joy of pure being.
