520    "Though we have encountered our share of grief and 
       troubles on this earth, we can still hold the line of 
       beauty, form, and beat. No small accomplishment in a world
       as challenging as this one." So writes Alice Walker in 
       this new book of poems, poems composed over the course of 
       one year in response to joy and sorrow both personal and 
       global: the death of loved ones, war, the deliciousness of
       love, environmental devastation, the sorrow of rejection, 
       greed, poverty, and the sweetness of home. The poems 
       embrace our connections while celebrating the joy of 
       individuality, the power we each share to express our 
       truest, deepest selves. Beloved for her ability to speak 
       her own truth in ways that speak for and about countless 
       others, she demonstrates that we are stronger than our 
       circumstances. As she confronts personal and collective 
       challenges, her works dance, sing, and heal.
