"Books are like music...you have to be drawn
to them and they have to speak to you.
May those who find relevance in my writings be drawn to
a moth to a flame and bring others to feast."
Mary Ann Fosco
The title of this
series of books which I have written starting back in 1964,
is Putting The Pieces Together.
These books are a collection of poems, memoirs, spiritual
writings, a deja vu experience in Spain, soul writings and
short stories that I have written at various times in my life
pertaining to my relationships, my journey of personal growth &
self-healing, & my relationship with my God.
The books are about my search for self, and my survival of
emotional, verbal and psychological abuse. In my life
experiences, when the relationships didn't turn out the way I
would have liked, I have tried to view their presence in my life
as a gift, even though the outcome may have been
bittersweet. Some portions of my memoirs involve my relationship
with food including my 20-year struggle with bingeing and
dieting. The struggle ended once I fully realized that the pain
of staying the same was greater than the pain of change.
I am striving for universality in my eclectic approach to
writing, teaching and lecturing. I believe all persons, ethnic
groups, religions, cultures and countries, have something of
value to contribute to our lives. I am not here to sway you from
your belief system, your personal philosophy or your
lifestyle. I invite you to search your heart with an open mind
in order to take from these books what speaks to you.
These writings are most importantly about my determination to
rise above, be the best I can be & realize my full potential. I
hope that you can put any need to criticize or
find fault with yourself or
others aside, be non-judgmental, and just open up to the
possibility of seeing your life, your choices and your
opportunities in a way that you have never viewed them before.
May you find some insights that might be beneficial to your
personal journey back to wholeness and happiness in Putting The Pieces Together.
