About Glen Smith
My books are time capsules that combine artwork, prose and poetry, or graphics to show in common patterns of experience in our lives. Every person has a chaotic sequence of experiences creating their life collage that in literature might be described as a narrative or life story. In many of our own lives these experiences remain fragmented. Then, we have trouble identifying our own narrative. My time collages are intended to represent that chaotic chain of experiences and offer other opportunities for the reader to process images and language elements of generalized patterns. I hope these relationships may be useful in the reader’s personal lives.
When I graduated from high school in 1965 I worked in graphics for an aircraft company contracted to NASA. I helped make long Mylar PERT charts which covered rows of tables. One day the boss called us to a table to show us photographs. I was in awe. There on the table was a Hasselblad color photo of Astronaut Edward White; the first American had just floated in space. A new and fresh blue earth revolved behind him. This photo was later published as a cover on Life Magazine. It changed my perspective of everything. Visual images and language together help create our perspective and create a providence, or map, which helps us create our personal fate. For fifty years I combined artwork and technical illustration with written content to explain processes for preschool, public school, university, and health professionals. All of my books, or sequential collages, express the transparency within life’s process.

We believe that if three individuals, two Catholic and one Shiite can work together across almost eight thousand miles then nations and religions can work together for peace. True Peace is the only link capable of overcoming all religious barriers, acting as an essential interlocutor on the path of the history of humanity. We must struggle every day to keep Peace.

Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes
Leviathan vs The Empire is set of examples which model chains of human experience which proceed though the family, clans, businesses, nations and to the modern worldwide web. To consider a thesis and antithesis projecting our future the book uses the structure provided in Leviathan, published in 1651 by Thomas Hobbs. Sets of human exchanges are considered and their relationship to both persona abuse and large scale war. Leviathan vs The Empire is a serious presentation of process viewed from a
