Author and dream counselor Rose Gordy spent thirteen years of her early life as a nun effectively cut off from the world. In spite of the conditions within the church, she managed to leave and make a life for herself including getting married and having three sons. Through her experiences in the convent of the 1960's as well as decades of teaching in the classroom, she has woven a loose autobiographical narrative into this surprising book of poetry, "Stairs to the Attic."
A collection of poetry down to earth yet otherworldly, this is a book which instinctually eschews the conventional. Amidst the hundreds of little adventures within these pages, readers will no doubt find themselves transported to places and feelings familiar and fantastic. One could watch TV but nothing captures an experience like the timeless rhythmical synergy of song & speech which Humans call Poetry. (Find out about all her books at http://www.Rosewords.com.)
