So too are the poems in Sue Lawleys well-crafted Hieroglyphics of the Heart. In this debut collection, the author excavates generations of family stories and decodes the universal messages and emotions they hold. In todays society, it is often hard to express authentic emotions- we push them down rather than release them. We often talk in code or jargon to one another. This book is about being real and saying what is true. It is about transforming our conversations from undecipherable hieroglyphics to meaningful connections. The book covers a wide range of topics from marriage to motherhood, from divorce to death- political conflict to family conflict- illness and recovery, moving and being moved, transformation and resurrection. The range of emotions expressed covers love and pride, sadness and grief, compassion and kindness, anger and forgiveness, loss and hope.
