Poetry. Photography. What makes a person when the mind slips away? How do we retain our identity when our words, our thoughts, our desires go to war with us? Set against the unique backdrop of the Alaskan coast, its cultures and calendars, TIDE TABLES AND TEA WITH GOD explores how the issues of dementia and depression, mental illness and death, interact at the intersection of the carnal and the divine in each of us. This collection of poetry and black-and-white photography is a powerful representation of the sublime in the small, a navigation through the rocky landscape of human existence to the vantage points that will bring us face-to-face with ourselves, and ultimately, with one another.
