In this book Dr. Coulson shares his intimate knowlege of human behavior and searching for wisdom and truth. Dr. Coulson is a life-long poet, artist, and seeker of divine truth. He has used this medium to express his insight into the human spirit and soul's desires. Many of his poems were written in times of searching for ways to alleviate the pain of the people with whom he served as minister and psychological counselor. He has studied Biblical scripture since age 16 and human behavior for most of his life. The full spectrum of human emotions, experiences, and yearnings are examined. This book should be of interest to persons in all walks of life. The essays explore human experience from Biblical lessons of faith. The poetry comes from a deeper place within Dr. Coulson's emotional journey and relate at a different level to move the human heart. The photography seeks to capture the beauty of both man's creation and of the creator of it all. Dr. Coulson says that to see a sunset or a new bloomed flower, mountain range, or blue sky and lake is to merely think of God and say "Wow!" The reader is invited to share the beautiful sentiments..
Writing poetry is thought to come from stimulating the non dominant portion of the brain. Many have suggested that savants are using their right brain or non dominant centers to perform the amazing creative acts they are known to do. Others groups of people have become interested in healing the body, mind, and spirit through poetic composition or recitations of poems. Yet, this book is not structured to have academic purpose. Jesse Coulson has recently published a book for children called The Little Green Worm. This new book is an extension of that creative talent. Some people will carefully construct, even craft a book of poems on a particular theme. Others will write (with wild abandon) to their hearts content when stimulated by what may be called the poetic notion of nirvana. Still others will compile works that span decades and bring thought-filled expressions to notions of life, yes, and even spiritual filled life. The poems that Jesse Coulson has written and collected for Reflections of Love and Life must be just that type of book. Pastor Coulson is a renaissance person with many different interest including photography, painting, and collecting items that have been meaningful in his life, to mention a few. He has studied theology and psychology achieving advanced degrees in both. He has always loved singing and will sing with his life partner for church and is without restraint in his praise of God. As one who is rich in years has experience, he is providing us with a small dose of wisdom. It is clear that from the depths of his soul, he has articulated truths that he has learned in the classroom in life, and during a greater than 55-year marriage to Gunilla Coulson. So when you read this illustrated book of poetry, be ready to be nourished from every corner of your soul. Just maybe God will speak with you as He has so clearly spoken to him. Be sure to share this book with others when it does! I wish you happy reading... Alfred A. Santos, M.D.
