In uncertain times people turn to uncertain means. This book of poetry and art, of fables and philosophies, is aimed at the pandemic of crisis anxiety so many of us are going through right now in our daily lives and in our inner spaces.
We are all of us and each of us in this together.
The sciences but also the arts do provide remedies. The ancient Egyptians wrote curative words on fragments of papyrus to feed their burnt ashes to the afflicted. Lacking morphine, Walt Whitman read verses to fallen soldiers on the battlefields of the first Civil War. At their best, the right words are more than therapeutic, they can be curative.
Take a Deep Breath emulates this ritual here in administrating remedies for living in these times of crisis, in living with uncertainty.
“…in dark and mendacious times we need poetry because its careful, precise way with language is a form of truth-telling.”
Amit Majmudar,The New Yorker
“Igor takes you into the guts of the pandemic and gives you a tour of the struggles and trials of the everyday environment of the virus that is stalking this dystopian pandemic world of the year 2020. Wide-ranging, he takes you from trans-global to the nightly news of the day
that is rocketing past at roller coaster speed, pure emotive emotions so personal that it makes you sit back and wonder at the writing here
and what you have just read”. – Chris Vannoy - US Beat Poet Laureate 2019
A unique collection of fully illustrated poetry, fables, and philosophies, Take a Deep Breath, Living With Uncertainty, is a book aimed at the pandemic of crisis anxiety so many of us are living through.
