“When I was reading “Impetus – No cover up” it occurred to me that the act of being in the space with the thought and reflections provoked by the words and illustrations in the book potentially
provided, what I can only describe as, a pre meditative or pre mindful state. This state was more
tranquil than the one occupied by everyday angst but less calm than a meditative space. This got me thinking about my advocacy of meditation etc as part of the potential healing for my clients. I realise that people often struggle to sit in that space when they are also sitting with anxiety or whatever
feelings are present for them. I think that Impetus has the appropriate flavour and insight in its use of
language and spiritual sensitivity to act as a bridge/signpost to the meditative state which is often so challenging for people in today’s world.” S.Gibson

““Impetus – No cover up” is very good and inspiring. It’s very much an excellent resource to dip into and find something helpful on the spiritual journey.
I also loved the illustrations as a way into the Psyche.”

“This is an extra-ordinary book. It is not a flash in the pan, here today, gone tomorrow. It combines so, so much. I am particularly impressed with the Mindfulness section today from page 158 on. Also pages 162 and 3.

“Your book is quite exceptional – an impressive collection of meaningful thoughts so beautifully expressed. My yoga teacher came over for a cuppa last week and I showed it to her. She loved the illustrations as well. Altogether a triumph.”

““Impetus – No Cover up” is very beautiful The poems I have read so far are powerful.” A. Eisa, Contemporary artist, Educator and Public programmer.
“I’ve struggled with feelings of worthlessness for most of my adult life, so words like those are a real comfort to me. I can identify with so many of the emotions expressed in your poem “A little credit to
myself”, which I’ve read several times now. “Perfection is our illness” also resonates with me. I am sure many will be touched by the words in your book.” Sue, age 74
“Reading your book at the moment, P.47! Each piece feels as it if could be me, or anyone.”
