What began as Songs of the Angelic Gaze in the summer of 2006 continued the following year as The Bridge of Silver Wings, and developed even further two years after that into The Bridge of Silver Wings 2009. Whether readers describe it as a conversation between one author’s pen and his sense of an angel-populated cosmos, or a modern interpretation of literary voices such as Kahlil Gibran’s and Rainer Maria Rilke’s, this great adventure through dimensions of soul and letters now moves boldly forward as the volume entitled The River of Winged Dreams.
What marks this volume as one significantly different from its predecessors? As pointed out in “Evolution of a Vision: from Songs of the Angelic Gaze to The River of Winged Dreams,” the difference stems from a paradox. It is a paradox in the form of a dream that has exhausted the life of its beauty while giving birth to a new ongoing manifestation of its remarkable glittering self.
The manifestation of vision continued because the unsentimental realities of history continued, and exactly what that means in the context of The River of Winged Dreams is exquisitely apparent in pages reflecting seasons of the horror and elation of our very modern twenty-first century times.
