    " This is such a beautiful book...the very opening of it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. When I fell in love with the love of my life, I gave this book to her and made a small inscription inside, for how could I improve upon something already so beautiful and passionate and as full of desire that is contained within those words. What a wonderful gift to someone you love. "

    " Don't let the author's New Age name scare you off. The Invitation is a soulful poem about what should really matter between humans, not what Madison Avenue tries to condition people to. The book contains the poem, and a discussion of the poem. "
