Poetry/Romance/Adventure These poems, David Loye tells us, are very personal, and ours is a very personal story, as all love stories are. But we live in a world so desperately in need of love to heal its ever greater wounds. Indeed, in the lonely lives of all the Elear Rigbys (who at one time or ather are all of us), it could be said that for many of us our greatest need is to find the hope that love can t only flower but, despite everything, persist, forever growing. So begins the story one may glimpse behind the lines of these poems-the story of the turbulent, agonizing, humorous and joyful first 100 days of the discovery of one ather and the wonders of a new life together so many of us are w experiencing, or may recall of our early and middle years. Continuing the surprise of the poems scattered within their earlier joint biography 3,000 Years of Love, we go further and deeper into the lives of Riane Eisler and David Loye. Author of the international best-seller The Chalice and the Blade and The Real Wealth of Nations, Eisler has been called The New Renaissance Woman and One of the most important visionaries of our time. Author of the award-winning The Healing of a Nation, w in his eighties Loye is publishing a startling array of 20 new books ranging across fields of interest from science, education, politics, and moral evolution to entertainment, humor, and love. Into our lives come these times of the peak experience when for a while one's own small world or the larger world embracing us suddenly opens up with a sense that maybe this time it might be forever, Loye writes. So the story unfolds in this unique treasury of the greatest time in the lives of most of us in the past, present, and as long as the sun rises, sets, and the moon in lonely glory gladdens the earth.
