9781492847991: Threshold: Poetry and Ponderings

A door opens... closes. A threshold is crossed. Someone has moved from one reality to another. If our first threshold brings us into this world; our last takes us out. In between those two how many thresholds do we cross-physical ones, experiential ones, spiritual ones? How often do we move from one reality to another without a moment's thought? Perhaps we should pause...consider...evaluate... Glenna Teti has written poetry for twenty-five years. Her poetry comprises a social, spiritual, emotional and philosophical commentary. She exhibits the questioning nature of a free thinker while laying an intellectual foundation for today's independent women who are rising to structure the priorities of a nation. This is unusual poetry because it seeks to examine roles and values of a people living in relative prosperity and peace in a world of on-going turmoil, poverty, conflict, greed and disregard for fellow human beings. In this age of careening, and often reckless scientific and technological "progress", how can one live a life of fulfillment and contribution? Where is the center of our being? Where is the core of our understanding of who we are? Perhaps it is here.

About the Author:

Glenna Teti's career in education has spanned both teaching and administration. Her academic degrees, BA in international relations, MS in education, and MA in political sociology, were earned at Sweet Briar College, Syracuse University and San Jose State. Having been born and raised in New York City, she married a fellow graduate student at Syracuse and moved to California. In Monterey, she raised three sons and taught political science and sociology at several California Community Colleges, and interestingly, Salinas Valley State Prison at Soledad.  Glenna later became the academic administrator of the evening division of Hartnell College, supervising 350 faculty and 3,500 students. She considers California's commitment to a statewide system of almost free community colleges to be a model for democratic education for the world. She believes nothing enables an individual to succeed better than education, and when that education is almost free and available locally, democracy can truly flourish. Glenna Teti lives on Bainbrodge Island, Washington with her husband, Jim Alger, and their English shepherd, Moxie.
