I am quite ashamed at how long it has taken me to read this book. But I partly blame my husband for moving this tiny book and I recently found it.
This book is for those who are struggling. If you are struggling with a mental illness, with heartbreak, with yourself, this little book of poems if for.
Gardner has created a perfect little getaway with his poetry. I consider myself an overall happy person of a sound mind and disposition, but reading Gardner’s words has caused me to do some soul searching for myself. I found myself opening up to poetry in a way I never thought I would. And thinking deep, meaningful thoughts I haven’t had in a long time.
For fear is a false expectation appearing real. . . from the darkside doubt creeps.
Sometimes our struggle is something from within, and something we have to face.
Tony Gardner’s little book will definitely be a staple on my night stand for when I need inspiration and uplifting thoughts.
Reflections: A Mindful Journey receives 4 stars.
