Edmonds, WA, May 05, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Mac Kenney announced today the release of My Pictures, My Words, published by Outskirts Press. This collection of vibrant images and stirring words from the multi-talented Mac Kenney sparks an appreciation of the beautiful diversity of life in a world in which, in relative terms, we spend such a short amount of time.
“…nothing is out of our reach
let your mind expand, your soul
pretend you are a child with me.”
This invitation by the talented Mac Kenney is one easily accepted and also easily done as readers view these striking photos accompanied by his thoughtful verse. An inspirational volume, My Pictures, My Words evokes a full range of life, love and natural beauty -- from the mystery of a single lonely bench to the grandeur of the sun dropping below a brilliant red horizon.
As striking as his photos are, the spectacular images resonate even more fully with his accompanying verse. “Life,” for instance, reminds readers of the dangers of settling for a mere nine-to-five existence. “So Little Time” encourages taking advantage of this brief appearance of ours on earth and of our ability to take control of it. “You Are Here, Where Am I?” tells of the love that is out there waiting for any one of us.
Sprinkling in a bit of humor, a pinch of patriotism and a dash of the American dream, Kenney also pays tribute to the values passed on to him by his parents and grandparents. Self respect, honor and integrity provide a sturdy philosophical backdrop to the lavish beauty of his photographs and the emotional chords of his verse.
My Pictures, My Words is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
