My new book is now available. Check out the cover, forward, and the first few chapters.Brandt_00202_Excerpt
Looking forward to reading your new book, Gareth. Also, memories of our chats and cycling adventure continue to rise to the surface like screen saver photos. Good times a passing. Upon awaking this morning, I mused about what reminders help me remember my son, Marc. What surprised me about the sequence of thoughts was a whole new way of appreciating the work of the Spirit in the process of building Marc’s memorial. A simple rainbow will almost always cause me to reflect on Marc’s life. So, the rainbow has the same curvature as the mantle on the memorial. This mantle connects the two “legs” which are symbolic of the cross and they, in turn, support the swinging cross made of purple heart wood. The centerpiece represents Marc’s spiritual life while the two legs represent Sara’s and my respective families of origin and spiritual lives. Blind-sided by grief, I moved through the building process, wiping tears and sweat, and I was guided by God’s love to create the memorial with so much symbolism….I am blessed and grateful for this new perspective. Your friend, Henry

Every time I work with wood I think differently now as a result of you. You must post a picture of the memorial.
