"Patti Tronolone is a Sensitive. Clear. Insightful. Powerful in her musings. Each image, each word she renders, allows us into the subtle plays and turnings of our complex mind, and the soul that fills in at every opportunity. This is a book for everyone. It is lush, breathable, art."
—ANNAM (Elle Collier Re) Annam is teacher-in-residence at The HeartGate Oneness residential study facilité in Hood River, Oregon.
"Patti’s work is a distillation of images, dreams and experiences, drawn from deep places of consciousness. She has travelled the far corners of her own existence to render in strong, naked words and brush strokes a clarity to penetrate this reality, and reveal its essence before you. Her work is an invitation, "A calling to something yet to arrive," something full of potential for opening and growth, something lying right beside us all the time, waiting to be seen."
—CHRIS BROWN, Writer, Photographer(ChrisBrownPhotography.com)
"Patti Tronolone is an extraordinary healer, a gifted artist and a poet. Through creative and intuitive channels, she evokes and illuminates deep veins of truth and invites her readers to open to their own wells of inner knowing and self-recognition. A beautiful gift for our souls."
—ROXANNE HOWE-MURPHY, Ed.D , Founder and Author, Deep Coaching and Deep Living Institute
"Ms. Tronolone’s work embodies an innocent and strong clarity, in the Herman Melville-sense —metaphoric landscapes merged with poetry. Her dream-like and emotional imagery invite us to explore depths that we seldom touch. They are subtle voyages into our deeper psychic feelings through the feminine sensibility. This offering is a truly delicious and mystical experience." —GRANT TAYLOR, Artist
