Hydroglyphics: Reflections on the Sacred

Is all water sacred?
To me this feels powerful and true–water is sacred.
Water is life.
“La vida es sagrada,” Hispanos also say. Life is sacred.

TAT Press’ latest publication is an inspired collaboration between Phaedra Greenwood and Shawn Nevins mixing photography and poetry.  If you enjoyed The Ten Thousand Things by Robert Saltzman, you’ll find Hydroglyphics equally profound.  The abstractions and reflections of Greenwood’s images pull the reader into silent spaces where grace becomes apparent.  Combined with the, at turns, haunting and celebratory poems of Nevins yields a nondual tour de force of which any Zen master would approve.

Everyone should keep a copy at hand so they may open it daily to imbibe the images and thoughts of two people who understand the necessity of beauty and love to help us maintain our reasons for being.
