Poetry. "SUFFICIENT EMPTINESS holds life's contradictions in balance on the fine edge of language. With elegance and grace, Power captures moments of connection and reverie. With sly wit and savvy insight, she meditates on history, memory, and art. This is a collection of those 'hushed thefts' in life that change us, as well as a roadmap of how to traverse the journey. SUFFICIENT EMPTINESS is more than a book, it is the balm we need for the wound of these difficult times."—Amy Wray Irish
