To see the infinite in a grain of sand

And eternity in an hour

The All is in every Part. This includes you, the reader. Or to put it in a verb sense, everything affects everything else. Thus, in meditation, meditating on your breath is important.

You too are here for the sake of All!

And we often feel alienated? Why?

Interestingly, people like Elaine and Francis McGillicuddy practice Yoga. Yoga literally means to "yoke" or to bind together. Thus it is much more than a belief system. It is a marriage to the All. "To see a world in a grain of sand" is simply what is true for all of us.

All of Elaine's work is about binding together. Her love is towards all. It continues to be so even after going through the life-altering experience of the loss of Francis, her spouse.

Elaine soon realized that her calling to be a poet and writer had become an imperative. Amazed over Francis' remarkable request for her to sing for him when he died, she chose her, Sing to Me and I Will Hear You, as the primary title for all three of her books . She also recorded a CD of her reading The Poems, the subtitle of the first book. The second book in prose, subtitled, A Love Story, is a memoir . The third book, New Poems, marks the completion of her trilogy. Reflecting over five years of the author's experience as a widow, this trilogy tracks her progression from being his wife and helpmate, to becoming midwife at his death, through the devastations of widowhood, into a renewed commitment to service and connection as long as she remains in the world.
