TREES ARE MY MUSE - A Tale of Love and Friendship

Through photos and prose, trees from all over the world whisper a small tale to us, a tale of their lives, and how their lives intertwine with our own. "Trees Are My Muse" presents a tribute to the ones who breathe out the air we breathe in, and who breathe in the air we breathe out.

"That I May Always Plant Trees - A Lithuanian Prayer" photos by Mary Lee Dereske

Now ostensibly Christian, Lithuania's religious heritage rests on a beautiful ancient mythology. This small treasure is an adaptation of a pagan Lithuanian prayer, translated into English. The prayer is beautifully illustrated with Lithuanian scenes by photographer Mary Lee Dereske. Of Lithuanian descent, Mary Lee visited Lithuania in the summer of 2009, a mere 20 years after Lithuania fought to reclaim its independence from the USSR. Her images help the reader to touch the heart of Lithuania.

Available in both softbound and hard cover format as well as eBook. 

"Prayer of St. Francis—A Prayer for Peace" photos by Mary Lee Dereske

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace." Thus begins this beautiful prayer, a meditation to expand peace in the world, beginning with one's self. Originally published in 1912 in a small French magazine, this prayer has been known by several names, from the original "Belle prière à faire pendant la messe" to the "Prayer of St. Francis." Photographer Mary Lee Dereske's images compliment each phrase, creating a prayer book to be treasured and returned to again and again.

Available in hard cover, soft cover and PDF.
