“It’s absolutely beautiful. It is embedded with so many pearls of wisdom we can all apply to life. . . . and I wanted to share it for those who might find comfort in his words.
Thank you for you gift of words and truths, Cary.”

“Hi Cary. My mom (Laurie),
sister (Darby) and I (Katie) came across your stand in Asheville. After you wrote the poem for my mom, she cried for two days. Although she cried, it very quickly blossomed into joy and a realization that she has created this new life. I wanted to thank you for that experience. She framed your poem and it hangs up in her living room. You are so genuine, intuitive, and my mom absolutely raves about you to everyone she meets. You are blessed with an incredible talent, and I hope everyone has the experience that my mom has.”
