Celebrations ah Song:
Rejoicing Through Art, Poetry & Narratives

with T Newfields

Finding the Flower - an art work by T Newfields begun in Nov. 2001 and finished in June 2002 in Nagoya, Japan

 

This collection of poetry, art, dialogs, raves, essays, & short stories celebrates life. It affirms the value of small miracles. After working on books condemning militarism, eco-greed, and educational travesties, I decided to work on something life-affirming. Fortunately, many things in this world are uncorrupted by human folly. I believe such things make not only our lives more enjoyable, but also all lives more worthwhile. The gift of clean air, pure water, clear skies, and diverse life forms should not be taken for granted. In fact, over-population and excessive exploitaion threaten each of these. We should affirm the value of simple things like unexpected flowers, sudden rainbows, and warm hugs. These works are small reminders that our world is but one small part of a greater world worth celebrating. We should never become too busy with our own petty lives to forget to celebrate. Celebration is a process of affirming. By celebrating each event, we not only affirm it — but also help sustain it.
