Judith Carpenter writes from the heart and mines from the depths of her soul, yet her words are translucent and accessible…. Nothing is beyond the scope of her pen, which writes over and over of the oneness of all things. It is a rare and beautiful gift to see into the day-to-day heart of how an inner life works. Not only is it a delight to the reader’s soul, but Judith shows the way for us all with her honesty and clear perception… simply letting us know that “everything belongs.”

Part of the role of a poet is to recall our attention to the layers of meaning and beauty held within each moment, each day. Judith Carpenter elegantly fulfills this role by providing us with daily reminders and points of access for newly appreciating the preciousness of life and the world we live in.
