From the introduction by M. Raven Metzner: "There are two kinds of stories that we can tell. We can tell you the "how" stories and do it gladly because they reinforce the act of creation. We love these stories, and we learn our place in a grander scheme by sharing them.... But there is another kind of story that can be told -- the story that is illuminated in the images that Sheila Metzner has traveled the world to gather. It is the story of a certain way to be. A story of choosing the right words, the perfect words to express a meaning that gives an image a new life beyond its basic intention. These photographs are a personal expression of an interior monologue that lends them a beauty and a timelessness that make them sing."
