Herman Gapour’s The Golden Book of Poems is an emotional journey into the life and times of a man who has experienced so much along the way. This unique collection of poems provides space for reflection, time for insight and a powerful message about the deeper meaning of life. It’s a collection that’s timely, inspiring and ready to be read by anyone who wants to focus on discovering deeper meaning in the ups and downs of life.
“What I really wanted to do was show the readers of my work that you can ground your life in meaning when you consider the presence of something higher in the world. It’s not about pushing a particular outlook or way of thinking; more about looking at the world, and the things it sends our way, through a more inspirational lens. I’ve found that this way of thinking about life has helped me in more ways than I could have ever imagined. I hope that if even just a few people tap into this way of thinking and living, my efforts will have been worth it and my time will have been well spent.”
This is a thought-provoking way to look at life, but why now?
“The world is always in a state of flux, this much we all know from history. But right now I feel the world is changing at such a pace that it’s become all too easy to lose yourself in the moment. There is so much access to information, so much constant news, and a seemingly endless array of networks and contacts out there. None of this by itself is negative, it’s just that it can all come together and distract you from what life is really all about. For me, life is about thinking through the journey and taking solace in the idea of something, or someone, higher than yourself.”
And where does he hope this work will take him?
“In many ways this book started as a passion project that would allow me to see life with greater clarity. Now that I’ve fallen in love with the simple act of putting pen to paper, I’d love to start a discussion with other creatives about what they take away from my work. I hope that by doing this I can spread a little awareness of the enduring beauty of the written word and the power it has to force us to sit and reflect about what life really is.”
