My Body is a Forest-Cypress/Right Arm

In "My Body is a Forest, Cypress/Right Arm", Mr. Vanya embraces the possibility that it takes not only passion to live life fully and to the benefit of mankind, but courage, faithfulness, and comradery. And as with all of Mr. Vanya's poems, the result is simple: Embrace every last iota of it, and hold nothing back. As a single book, Cypress is an extended hand, as a part of the whole: a seed. More

About Scott Vanya

I've been writing for a very long time, what seems like my whole life, taking it seriously from the time I was about 11. Now, at 46, I think I may be starting to get the hang of it: Say what you feel, as passionately as you can, but always with an ear turned to those who are listening.
Most of my more serious work is done at live performances, which i do totally extemporaneously, channeling the mood of the room as my fingers play on the guitar. You can see some of that if you go to "my" website. (Open Mics Austin is a platform I created to showcase the Spoken Word scene here in Austin, TX. Only a small role in which i play.)
As far as I can tell what makes good writing is LOVE. Love ,plainly simply, and with no strings attached.
I put these words/books before you, not so much because I want something back from it, because I think and feel like I feel my bones and my soul, if you were to see the world, experience it like it do, for even a brief moment, you would walk away from that happier, more alive, compassionate and in tune with all those around you.
Peace, good will, and harmony. Let those be your guiding light.
Agape forever,
Scott Vanya
