Within My Illusions invites you on a poetic journey of discovery. Join author Jennifer Bloom as she explores questions that arise when making friends with paradox, allowing boundaries to blur, and testing the limits of our habits and beliefs.
The poems, taken individually and collectively, tell stories and also question the role that story plays in how we make sense of the world and ourselves. Linger on one poem at a time or take in the book all at once. Read the poems as an observer or bring your own heart into the conversation.
Within My Illusions invites us to pause and reflect on the wondrous inner world of sensation, image, emotion, and thought. The heart of what this treasure reminds us is the magnificent experience of being alive, here, in this precious unfolding we call our life.
