Summary

At the oracle in Delphos, at the entrance to Apollo's temple in ancient Greece, there was a stone which had some strange signs written on it. It was an invitation to begin one of the most fascinating adventures that a human being can undertake. In other words, the adventure of self-discovery. This book is a map which will accompany us on this trip inside ourselves. Little by little the secret of how people create the eyes through which we observe and perceive the world, will be revealed. It is with the same eyes that so often make us focus on our guiltabout the past rather than on future opportunities.

Reinventing yourself does not mean becoming someone different from how we really are but rather bring our REAL SELF to the surface. It is in this new area of possibilities where creativity fl ows, along with the wisdom and energy to completely transform our experience, bringing with it more
calm, desire and confi dence into our lives. The key lies within ourselves, in the exercising of our personal freedom, taking choices that slowly but surely lead us to transform our outlook.

Marcel Proust said that, "the real act of discovery does not consist in going out to look for a new land but in learning to see the old land with new eyes." It is with our new eyes that we will be able to see what before we were blind to. It is also these new eyes which will lead us to discover how to reach what before had seemed unattainable.

In addition to Mary Lou'             s firsthand account of her extraordinary journey, many friends and family, including world-renowned classical musicians, opera divas, directors, and actors, share their perspectives on her resilience in these pages.

    The Blessing - A Memoir

    An acclaimed poet’s “gripping” memoir of an accidental tragedy, a childhood haunted by guilt, and a quest to find healing through art (Publishers Weekly). 
     
    When Gregory Orr was twelve years old, he shot and killed his brother in a hunting accident. From the immediate aftermath—a period of shock, sadness, and isolation—it quickly became clear that support and guidance would not be coming from his distant mother. Nor would it come from his father, a philandering country doctor addicted to amphetamines. Left to his own devices, the boy suffered. 
     
    Guilt weighed on him throughout a childhood split between the rural Hudson Valley and jungles of Haiti. As a young man, his feelings and a growing sense of idealism prompted him to activism in the civil rights movement, where he marched and was imprisoned, and then scarred again by a terrifying abduction. Eventually, Orr’s experiences led him to understand that art, particularly poetry, could work as a powerful source of healing and meaning to combat the trauma he carried. 
     
    Throughout The Blessing, Orr articulates his journey in language as lyrical as it is authentic, gifting us all with a singular tale of survival, and of the transformation of suffering into art. 
     
    “Even a chaotic and hapless family, it seems, can confer a blessing—the strength to live in the world as it is, and the wisdom to love people as they are. The book is not so much about surviving pain so much as developing a writer’s instinct for transforming it.” —Kathleen Norris, New York Times–bestselling author of The Cloister Walk
