Messages From a Wiser Self
If only you could meet your younger, greener self, what might you say?
Terry Helwig explores this perennial question and how the human heart, tested by time and adversity, broken open by love and beauty, ripens and bears fruit. Her lyrical and compelling reflections awaken us to our place in the vast universe, to the currents of joy and loss, and to the sacred treasure of being alive.
Inspired by her beloved Florida barrier island, Helwig discovers a landscape of fierce beauty within as well as without.
