Descrizione

This work began with the taking of notes on insights and observations derived from contemplation of the Bible, my own life, and the death of my sister. The writings were initially oriented toward the composition of a filmscript, whose purpose was to depict, abstractly, scenes common to the lives of all mankind from birth to death.

In February of 1984, well over a year into this project, these lyrics began to pour forth from me. Three-quarters of them were finished before the end of the month.

During this period of my life, I underwent an intense conversion to purity of soul. I immersed myself in the practice of all the artistic mediums, including painting and sculpture, poetry, music, dance, and drama. Striving to be an artist for Christ, my life became as a cross between graduate student, monk, and convict.

This way of living and working continued for seven years and resulted in the creation of the large manuscript, Songs for Children of Light: Ten Albums of Lyrics, Music, Dance, and Drama. In this volume, I present the lyric portion of the project with accompanying illustrations.

May the Light of the Spirit be with you as you read the words herein.

Informazioni sull'autore

James Kurt lives much as a hermit in the city – Jersey City, New Jersey.  He spends about six hours a day in prayer, including Catholic Mass, Liturgy of the Hours, full Rosary, Stations of the Cross, meditation on Scripture and the writings of the saints, and silent prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.  He works another five or six hours on his writing.  A website (see back of book) contains the forty-plus Catholic Christian writings he has composed over the past twenty years.  Mr. Kurt also serves as an adjunct ESL instructor one day a week at a local university to support his vocation. The author has recently published three other books with AuthorHouse: silence in the city, a series of contemplative poems on the presence of God in all places; Songs for Children of Light: Ten Albums of Lyrics, a white on black conceptual work with simple drawings for each song; and Turn of the Jubilee Year: A Conversion Song, an autobiographical prose depiction of vocation search through pilgrimage to Medugorje and stays at a hermitage or two. He is currently preparing two other volumes for publication: YHWH: On the Divine NAME and The Cross, as well as a third – The Will to Love (and other writings of the Spirit).
