Prayer in wind by Eva Saulitis( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a devastating diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer, biologist and poet Eva Saulitis found herself gripped by a long-buried childhood urge to pray. Finding little solace in the rote "from the fox-hole please Gods" arising unbidden in her head, she set herself the task of examining the impulse itself, waking every morning in darkness to write poems, driven on by the questions: What is prayer? What am I praying to? What am I praying for? Who is listening? Each day's poem proposed a new and surprising answer as, over two years, she traced the questions back to her origins, her Latvian roots, her peasant grandmother, her war-haunted father, her secret-bearing mother, her childhood Catholicism, her obsession with the natural world. Moving from inward to outward, among radically different geographies (coastal Alaska, Latvia, and Hawaii) and spiritual influences (Catholicism, mysticism, Zen Buddhism) as well as forms, these biologically precise poems range widely in their search. Unexpectedly, these prayer-poems, forged out of a solitary confrontation with death, take a reader not out of, but deeper into physicality--of the body, the earth, and language itself. As Saulitis learns, what is most desired is not transcendence, but for as long as possible, "her hands thrust deep in the world."

Learning to navigate by Eva Saulitis( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Learning to navigate is an essay collection in three sections. While the essays are linked thematically, each essay stands alone in time, narrative and structure. The essays are grounded in the premise that the present contains the past. The narrator seeks to integrate past experience by navigating through fear and memory to a more complex view of herself in relationship to others and to the natural world. The collection moves through three stages: questioning, exploring memory, and reclaiming language. The natural world, particularly water, is a lens through which questions pass, through which the voice passes and is transformed. Navigable waters are those wide, deep and debris-free enough to allow safe passage. Navigation's art relies on response from a center, a place of wholeness. In this collection, the narrator learns to navigate not toward answers, but toward greater complexity, toward the silent spaces between what can be spoken and named"--Leaf 3
Guide to the trails of Herbert C. Mackie Center by Eva Lucia Saulitis( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Up here : the North at the center of the world( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The North is a complex place that is beautiful, moody, and anything but untouched. The Arctic, part of the international North that is pivotal to the world because of climate change, is no longer a frontier of the past. The same interest in the North that preoccupied artists and explorers of the Romantic era has returned greater than ever, but rather than merely depicting its grandeur, today's artists, scientists, and explorers question the future of the landscape. Up Here connects art, science, and environment at a time when unprecedented climate change requires unprecedented innovation. The contributors explore the ideas of "wilderness" and "remoteness," the lessons to be learned from cold places and indigenous knowledge, and how the Arctic is a signal for global change
