"Asymmetrical Wind Dancing" is a collection of poems that humorously celebrates the human condition and opines our place in the cosmos. While each one of the 7.3-billion people on Earth is unique in our beliefs, passions and desires, we all come from the same place. Our gift, unlike that of any other sentient being on Earth, is the magic of our imaginations. It is through our imaginations that we create our alternate universes. If there is a question for which there is no rational answer, no problem, we will imagine one. The earliest known religious icons date back some 100,000 years ago when we were essentially cave dwellers. Since that time, humans have spawned thousands of religions, each one a product of its point in human evolution, and each one thought to be the better mousetrap by its believers. Our imaginations give rise to ideas which lead to inventions. Those ideas and inventions help define who we are. Our imaginations also get us into trouble as we blur the line between the rational and the imaginary. "Asymmetrical Wind Dancing" is a celebration of the asymmetry between rational thought and our imaginations. It should be standard equipment on every night table.

About the Author:

Woodrow Lloyd Pelley grew up in Gander, Newfoundland. His parents hail from villages in Bonavista Bay and Trinity Bay. His modern views are tempered by his rural upbringing where the wilderness was his childhood playground. OK, so he was born in a small airport town on an island in the North Atlantic. Anyway... He gravitated to literary fiction during high school, with a penchant for satire, obtained a liberal arts degree (B.A. English) from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador, and honed his skepticism through a B.A.A., Journalism, at Ryerson University in Toronto. Throughout the past few decades, he has been a student of politics, the environment, religion and economics — a combination that only a social science wonk could love. He also has a day job, but we're not here to talk about that. For much of his adult life, Woodrow has studied the history of humanity through the lens of various intellectual disciplines – specifically to understand how we evolved to where we are today and where we will likely be near the end of this century. Woodrow believes that humans have dominated Earth and exploited its riches to the breaking point. Our exponential population growth, hunger for material possessions and degradation of rational thinking through religious zealotry and political partisanship, sets the stage for our extinction. He believes that humans must hit the reset button of our value system to avoid dire consequences. But, hey, no stress. Woodrow published his first novel, Too Cute by Half, in April 2014. It is a story of how Newfoundland, a quirky island in the North Atlantic, becomes the epicenter of apocalyptic evil. Humans reach a crossroads during the 21st century. Political, economic, environmental and religious conflicts merge to create a world where human extinction is a certainty without divine intervention. An odd mix of characters, where some people are not be as they appear, is set on an unstoppable path of destruction. This dark satire gives readers plenty of human matters to ponder. Its ending is anything but predictable. Woodrow's second work, Asymmetrical Wind Dancing, is a collection of abstract poetry to challenge the reader’s perceptions and to be thought-provoking about humans’ place in the universe. Good luck with that.
