‘Between the Empty and the All’ is a large poetic journey encompassing the spiritual and ethereal as it walks alongside the emotional and casual moments that pervade the human experience.  It’s romantic and inspirational.yet grounded and real.  Deakin-Drown’s approach to poetry is familiar and soothing; fresh and exciting.  A myriad of moods dip, sashay and sway their way through the pages in a silver screen rendition of nostalgia and longing where there are only a few sparse pieces left behind on the cutting room floor. Feel the rhythm and heartbeat moving within the poetic lines… then, step into the poet’s dance.  ~ Candice James, Poet Laureate Emerita, New Westminster, BC CANADA
