From the Author
I spent almost two years noodling with the layout and finding illustrations that I felt fit the themes of the pieces in this collection. I wanted to be sure that the way the pieces were displayed on the printed page helped to evoke and enhance the piece. The illustrations are not my own, but I found they were exactly the style I wanted to bring into the book.
The book is broken into three sections: LIFE, PSALMS, and MIDRASH.
The midrash included is really the only one I've ever written, Miriam the Prophetess. Midrash is a Jewish tradition of "filling in the gaps" left in the stories of the Torah. This midrash, which re-interprets Miriam the Prophetess, was written over the course of several years, and the ending was found as I told the story aloud during the first gathering of the Kohanot.
