Endorsements of Wild Tourist
“Entering the world of Celeste’s Snowber’s Wild Tourist is a pressing of the ear to the “rumblings of your own soul.” Each lyric invites a quantum leap to the place where tourism becomes homecoming and you find yourself touching the body of the earth where it touches the body of the cosmos. In these poems hear how “the body sings/ the body cries and whispers/ with a wash of wonder.” ~ Susan McCaslin, author of The Disarmed Heart (St. Thomas Poetry Series) and Into the Mystic: My Years with Olga (Inanna)
“Reading 'Instructions to a Wild Tourist from the Divine Feminine' is the most responsible action I have taken in a long time and Celeste Snowber does not miss the opportunity to divinely, without hesitation remind me of this while reading. I feel happily obligated to share these instructions with other tourists in my life.
For my colleagues, daughters, friends and others I have yet to meet, I have found perfect poems to share in this passionately channeled book from a divine poet.” ~ Barbara Bickel, Artist and Professor of Art Education and Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Southern Illinois University
