About this title


Lalitamba was inspired by a pilgrimage through India. In 2004, we traveled from city to city in an effort to alleviate the suffering that comes from poverty, illness, and plain loss of hope. In India, the Divine Mother is called Lalitamba. She is looked to as the supporter of the universe.

Lalitamba is a journal of liberation.

Lalitamba 1 offers stories of emotional healing and personal growth. It opens with Samantha Holloway's short story "Melinda Miller's Laugh," the tale of a woman who is relieved of a long depression by the silver light of her own laughter. The compilation also includes an excerpt from Kate Niles' debut novel "The Basket Maker." The piece tells of two children who imagine a Navajo reservation out of the dank basement in which they live.

Lalitamba 1 is also bold in its realism. Amira Salaam Amro's short story "November, 1989" tells of an estranged couple who rediscover their love for each other as they come to terms with the fact that their youngest son is dying of AIDS.

The collection suggests that we make the most of our life and our loves in each moment. Stephen Kopel's poem "Intruder" jokingly compares his "minor hurts and major sorrows" to a house that needs rearranging. Barry Ballard's poem "The Silent Errand of Anything" describes learning how to forgive.

The power of the collection is its underlying message that all we need to be at peace is here, now, in our own heart.

Proceeds benefit Refuge, a holistic women's shelter. The journal is also donated to hospitals, prisons, and shelters throughout the country.
