I’m about two months out from wrapping up Shattering and Bricolage. Here’s a description of the project:
The title of David Bowles’ first collection of poetry references the artistic technique of creating by combining in a mosaic the shards of previous, broken works. The volume explores the idea of psychological growth as a sort of bursting-apart and reintegration
of the ego, examining the illusions and deceptions that humans can free themselves from if they are willing to undo their personas in order to expand their selves. Ranging from experimental to traditional, from lyrical to narrative and epic, these pieces sound the darkest depths of the human psyche and gaze upward at the dizzying heights we might one day reach.
