David Evans reads from his new book of poetry Light Like No Other

April 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Monday April 15th  7 to 8 pm

David Evans brings his wisdom, immense heart, and deep reverence for life to his second collection of poems, Light Like No Other. In this intimate collection, Evans explores his evolving relationship with self, spirituality, and the natural world.
With a conversational lyricism he meditates on healing from childhood trauma, shame, regret, and self-judgment. His poems embody what it means to love fully, move towards peace with our lives, and find a tender acceptance of our mortality. The vulnerable pieces reveal a growing courage to feel deeply and face life as it is.
Evans’ poems come alive with imagery of circling hawks, flocks of geese, soaring gulls, chatting finches and talking mountains. On long walks over coastal beaches, wetland paths, along river banks, and trails through headland forests, his beloved Oregon sings with startling clarity, providing the backdrop for his emerging self-love and a profoundly awakened relationship to life. He revises his old ideas about God and embraces a deep sense of gratitude and joy through a deeply felt inter-connectedness with the creative energy of the natural world. “Is this prayer enough?” he muses. “Where are you now Lord?” “Ask the sparrows. They will tell you. The whole universe is singing!”

A gorgeous book for all seasons of life, Light Like No Other will newly awaken you to the luminous beauty of the world and leave you tenderhearted and brimming with gratitude. –Rebecca Jamieson, author of The Body of All Things
