I have always believed in ‘Healing through art‘
So in keeping up with my philosophy, I have decided to launch my collection of “Adult Colouring Books”
It has been proven that colouring can be beneficial for adults; namely for its de-stressing power. It generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity!
Look out for my next book!
The first in my collection of ‘coffee table books’…
Frank Zappa once rightly said, “so many books, so little time.” In this busy life, it helps to keep things short, simple, and sweet. The 3 ‘S’ Theory!
“Shorter” is an anthology of some of my short stories and poems, weaving together unique narratives and multiple thoughts into one absorbing collection. It is playful, evocative, and emotionally complex at times. Exploring the grand absurdity of life, it will make you question logic and the real essence of it! Each story or poem is different with the common thread being my style and expression!

“Must Love Poetry,” by Chriselda Barretto is an eclectic collection of topics expressed in well written poetry. Topics range from Nature, Spirituality, the Universe…you name it and it is within these pages in some shape, or form. When I first saw that this poetry collection was 290 pages, I hesitated a little as this collection had only one author and other poetry books I have read of this size were always multi-author anthologies. I decided to read it like I read the anthologies…in different sittings without paying attention to the table of contents. I found that although I could identify the author’s voice in all the poems, each poem felt totally different than the next one. Each one was well written – some free style, some rhyme more than others, all spoke of different topics, and each expressed a distinct feel. Some of my favorites, to name a few, (although I loved the entire repertoire) are: ‘Soar,’ ‘From Mother to Son,’ ‘The Statue and The Tower,’ ‘Mind Me,’ and the one that really stayed with me, ‘Dark Pearl.’
Barretto has mastered multiple forms of poetry, but her talent of expression is what impressed me the most. To be able to share feelings and provoke thoughts about such a range of topics in one collection is remarkable. I liked the fact that she presented her work in no apparent sequence. This always kept me curious, wondering what the next one would be about, and how it would affect my mind and heart. Would it linger in my thoughts? Would it touch a moment within my life? Would it be about something I haven’t even thought about? Below is a short example to show how the author’s work is not only mind and heart stimulating…but also visually.
Living in an age
Surviving a rage
of pre-occupational hazardry
Collect your thoughts
and reinforce your mental imagery
For this world is the biggest asset
of evolution for humanity!’
I loved “Must Love Poetry” by Chriselda Barretto and consider it a five-star book of poetry for this era. Definitely a must-read for all poetry lovers!
