A collection of 15 essays written over the course of a decade and ranging in subject matter from living abroad, writing and poetry as art forms, world literature, the visual arts, culture, the need for solitude, and ancient mythology. A few have been published in print and online. Maulucci is a consummate generalist, committed to avoiding the narrow path and the limited view. He embraces and engages with the universal and the transcendent. He is inspired by the exploration of ideas and the search for the eternal truth in everyday existence. He is excited by the discovery of the connectedness of all that happens on this planet. What unites these essays is the author’s own voice, his poetic sensibilities, and his passion for both grace and gravitas.
