This book had a 3 A.M. start. I woke up at 3 in the morning three years ago and the entire idea for this book was completely formed from start to finish in my mind (as all great writing ideas do). The book underwent many transformations since its inception first starting out as a book about The Metropolitan Museum of Art where I had worked for many years, next evolving into a textbook for use by college students to be used in literature and art classes, and fi nally coming to rest in the form you are now holding in your hands. The book pairs poetry and art together and is an eclectic collection of both. I hope this book is a source of happiness for you and serves as a reminder to Look At Something Beautiful Every Day. Enjoy! J.C.P.

It features transcripts of conversations with Mother Teresa as well as a bevy of photographs illustrating her life-long role as a humanitarian. Wonderfully intimate and touching, this is an inspirational look at one of history’s most beloved and giving individuals.
