At times, the world can feel a bit dark and divided. It can feel like our branches are growing apart... and it's as important as ever to remember we are but one tree. Combining hand-drawn, childlike illustrations with sparse, lyrical prose, A Tale by Fire is the first in a series of spiritual picture books for adults and children alike. It is a meditative journey of fire and light across the ages of history - as told from the perspective of fire itself. From page to page, era to era, "fire" is defined loosely: a cityscape's glow, a rocket's exhaust, a star's light. Across the ages, it has been our tool, our weapon, and our beacon... telling the tale of our triumphs and tragedies, our private darkness and inner light. Woven with hardship, healing, and hope, this strange and visionary tale gently reminds us that we are without measure... and that when we choose to share our light, we can illuminate the world. Perfect for a bedside, a coffee table, or a quiet corner. AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a story for both children and adults (ages 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and up). However, please note that there are several childlike drawings of war throughout the book. The intention is for readers, young and old, to reflect on the responsibility that comes along with our inner power... because the next chapter of Planet Earth, for better or for worse, is ours to forge.
