In the late 1970s and early 1980s, as I approached the age of 40, I began to take a serious interest in the afterlife. This was largely the result of personal trauma and difficulties. I began to seek the assistance of holy souls by means of intercession.
For 30 years now I have been praying to those who have remained faithful unto the Covenant of God, those who can help the progress of the arts and sciences, those souls who have passed on to that Undiscovered Country. These poems are a reflection of my interest in the subject of the afterlife and, inevitably, in aspects of this life.
