A Unique Book that Captures the Full Beauty of Nature and the Human Spirit. Stirring images and piercing poetry come together in this gorgeous collection from the multitalented Mac Kenney. Here are vibrant color photographs that evoke the full range of human emotions, set against powerful verses on love, life, and the beauty that surrounds us. Ponder the mysteries of existence from a single lonely bench; reflect on what really matters as the sun drops beneath a brilliant red horizon; and examine the incredible diversity of life on our planet as you gaze on nature’s wonders. Those images gain even more meaning as you read Kenney’s memorable poems that urge a greater appreciation of our short time on earth. That’s the message of the poem "Life," which reminds us of the dangers of settling for a "9-5" existence and the incredible reward of being bolder. "So Little Time" is about taking advantage of our brief appearance and our ability to take control of it. "You Are Here, Where Am I" is about accepting the love that’s out there waiting for us. And that’s just for starters. Add some humor and patriotism and you have a truly wonderful book. Perfect for reading in sequence or in bits and pieces as you need them, My Pictures, My Words is the kind of book you’ll return to again and again to receive the most important kind of nourishment-food for the soul.
This book is just awe-inspiring. Mac Kenney is not only a great photographer, but a beautiful poet.
Each page is filled with a beautiful scenic photo that Mac Kenney shot himself and along with the photo is a beautiful poem that he wrote as well.
The poems are truly uplifting and inspiring. They remind us to take time out of our busy days and look around us at the people and places that we hold dear.
I am so thankful for receiving this book. It is definitely one to treasure.
