Much has been written about the spirit. In one of the genre’s more popular text, New York Times bestseller Seat of the Soul, author Gary Zukav introduced millions of readers to “authentic power,” power based on the perception of the soul. It is a perception author Mark Gregory Washer understands well. In his new collection Life Passion: Words Inspire Our Desire (published by Trafford Publishing), Washer writes from this place of “authentic power” to deliver poems and short stories that offer an alternative view of God and religion.

Life Passion is an inspiring collection of poetry and short stories spanning the majority of Washer’s life. The collection realizes Washer’s aim to dispel the inconsistencies found in religions and offers a simpler version of God’s will. While giving a fresh perspective on life and God’s expectations for spiritual living, Washer also delves into personal stories, from the sights and sounds of the romantic city of Odessa to fond memories of his great-grandmother. In the process of his creative outpouring Washer answers a question that has long plagued those in an existential merry-go-round: “why am I here.”

An excerpt of Life Passion:
“Only Words”

Words can heal
Words can hurt
Words can make you lose your shirt

Words are more
Words are less
In this deadly game of chess

Words will lose
Words will win
Words will cause your soul to sin

Does anyone hear me when I say
I can’t take another day
Does anyone care when I shout
Now it’s time to let me out

A unique offering of 69 pieces of poetry and prose, Life Passion is sure to find a home amongst a diverse readership.
