    Carolyn – This is one of my favourites of all your posts. I have come to believe that “poco y poco” is one of the empowering things we can learn. Instead of giving into despair or false humility, we take those small steps that are the foundation of what St. Paul called “hope.” As Paul said, love might be the greatest of these, but I think hope is the most courageous. It’s so easy to fall into the “there’s nothing I can do” trap. And that will be the death of us.

QUOTING RON HANSEN

"Carolyn Grassi's 'Heart and Soul' is fascinating in its fluent and affecting blend of memoir and poetry, reminiscence and sheer invention, loss, grief and homage. Adopting a persona at times, or imitating a seminal influence on her writing at other junctures, [Carolyn Grassi] has created a quilt of memories and reflections on a life's education—the journey we all hope to make from becoming to being, or from acting as disciples to representing ourselves and our art as apostles..."
Read the complete foreword by Ron Hansen in 'Heart and Soul' published by Patmos Press, San Francisco, CA.
