Author statement:

All my life, I have been fascinated by human behavior and experience. That people can experience the same event, but because of each person’s: mental, physical, emotional, and personality makeup; what is experienced; observed; or perceived, is quite different, because it is seen, or perceived, through the lens of, individual perspective. This is a book of experience and observation expressed in poetry from the perspective of an extremely visually impaired woman.

From poet-author Kathleen McKay and photographer Barbara Ries come a thoughtful poetry-photo anthology, Perceptions through the Mist. With pensively penned verses of various themes and vividly captured photographs of landscapes, poetry lovers and art enthusiasts are sure to enjoy this creative journey.

In this book of photographs and poetry, readers will find themselves on a journey of sorts. The poetic pieces will take them from “The Sky” through the “Moments in Time” and “In The Courtyard” to “The Future.” With beautifully written verses that let readers appreciate “Forms and Shadows,” see the eyes of “Sorrow,” experience the paradox of “Joy and Torment,” and understand the weight of “Choice,” Perceptions through the Mist is truly a visually captivating read that stirs the eyes, mind, and heart.
