Clearly, the universe
is a collective consciousness
created and seen in the image
of each one of us.
Do you see yourself in others?
Do you notice synergistic
experiences along the waves of life?
Foreword: In the academic world of physical geography, the point at which
two or more rivers meet is referred to as a confluence site. Such a site is ideally positioned to benefit from trade and commerce, and prosperity is practically guaranteed. After editing Laurie’s work, I sometimes feel as if she is situated at
a confluence site where coincidences meet. In the first place, the name of Laurie’s first band, Love All People, arose from her philosophy of life and a credo that she followed each day.
When she moved to Las Vegas, she became involved in a youth ministry ironically called Love All People, a name chosen by someone else who knew nothing of Laurie Cagno. Intriguing, indeed! Laurie’s pen name, Lady Cleopatra, was assigned by a stranger who had no idea Laurie’s childhood horse’s name was Lady or that her initials were L.C. And, he certainly had no idea Laurie was about to meet unique companions with prophetic names in a brief encounter at the beach. Furthermore, her horse Lady remained firmly fixed in her mind as horses kept jumping in and out of her consciousness through interactions with other strangers like the college student preparing to be a horse trainer.
The sand art pictured on the cover illustrates Laurie’s attitude toward life and other people, and it prophetically suggested a cover for the work Laurie had envisioned for some time. Some say there is no such thing as coincidence. Whether or not that is true, this book provides much for us to reflect upon and ponder as we continue life’s journey. - R.J B.

Blue Diamond’s graceful call (An excerpt.)
The whispers of Blue Diamond’s graceful call returns me to my true essence, revealing me, filling me with love, transforming me
with each breath. Cut by the powerful silence, set free.
Gentle, wonder-full tears bleed into me, seeping tenderly,
covering and coloring me, filling me to overflowing
through passionate kisses in my mind’s eye.
My voice rising again in a tapestry of sighs and woes, highs and lows,
as songs of celebration. Yes, we bloom where we are, even when we fall.
With a new dawn, light peeks through.
And, with eyes wide open, I see a glimpse
of shifting tides as a new song arrives.
~ Laurie Cagno
