Searching Sand Crabs in the Dark — A Journey Inward (poetry)

Book Description
A New Yorker by birth, Terry has gathered forty years of international experience in both the private sector and government where he resided in Poland, India, Lebanon, Berlin, Saudi Arabia, and most recently Afghanistan. He has traveled extensively throughout the Middle East, East and West Europe, and East and South Asia on assignment.

 

Ice Dance: Beyond the Grief (Poetry)

Ice Dance offers words that express the range of emotions that linger, often unspoken, in those who have experienced deep loss and seek a special healing.

Book Description
Ice Dance: Beyond The Grief explores emotions triggered by loss that lead to recovery. With grief addressed directly, these poems explore the emerging nature of joy and healing that soothes an anxious heart, as well as the risks involved in discovering new love. They reflect the spiritual base Terry has nurtured since his youth.

Terry’s poetry reflects a life-time of world travel and exposure to many spiritual traditions. Influenced by the spirituality of Thomas Merton, he seeks to know God intimately and is committed to the profound Christian teachings of his youth. He practices a daily ritual of early morning prayer and meditation. In no small way, Terry is also influenced by his environment – the ocean along which he lives, and the countless close friends who are so supportive to him and his son, Chris, since they relocated to Virginia Beach.

He maintains a close relationship with his five grown children, their spouses, and ten grandchildren, and still ventures off-shore in an ocean kayak. In addition to this volume, Terry has completed his manuscript Rules For Engaging Grief. He is presently working on a book entitled Praying Fingertips that incorporates his meditations and prayers into a daily devotional.

Terry welcomes queries about his work and invites the reader to visit his web-site and blog at www.rulesofengaging.com.

 

 

 

Rules for Engaging Grief—A Path to Healing (Healing process)

Book Description
Words fail me when I try to express the shock I felt when I learned that a car struck my wife in a cross walk as she was on her way to church. How can I impart the deep groan that sounded within when I agreed to take her off life-support later in the evening?

Responsible for raising an eight year old, the father of five grown children, and the grandfather of ten grandchildren, I realized that there was no time to lose in coming to some understanding, if not an acceptance, of this tragic event. I cleared the decks of all the peripheral concerns that seemed to occupy my life and focused instead on what I could do to recover my emotional and spiritual balance.

Within days of the tragedy I began jotting down thoughts that at times challenged the conventional wisdom for those suffering deep loss. The early notes proved a valuable and ready resource for me in dealing with the grief I was experiencing and helped me to access heart-felt emotions that sometimes men are constrained to explore.

Rules for Engaging Grief: A Path to Healing with its lessons, observations, reflections, poetry, and exercises was written to share a journey of healing. The rules can be applied to ease the grief suffered from any deep felt loss – the death of a loved one, divorce, or any disappointment so severe it is leveling to the point of grief. They are designed to discover new meaning and purpose for the individual at the deepest level. It is my hope that the reader will find them a companion on a climb to this place of stillness.
