The poems in Perhaps You Could Breathe For Me resemble almost too closely our own lives. On these pages are rare insights into relationships--the cruel, the complicated, the simple, the joyful, the sexy, the fearful, the painful, the intense. Newberry writes about what can go wrong, what does go wrong, about growing up, about the terrors and wonder of aging. She writes about sexuality, where it begins, and whether or not it ends. These poems are extraordinary as they journey through compassion, anger, strength, and universality. The cadences of ordinary speech make this work accessible, and, still, suggest that something rare and exciting is about to happen. Throughout and finally, Newberrys poems resonate with a search for spiritualityfor a God, she says we pray to, but do not know how to love.

The journey in life that we all take moves along different paths but there is a familiar tone to each travellers experience. No one can claim that life is an uninterrupted journey without frequent stops and starts. The reason for stopping or even slowing down, the length of time we stop vary but the consensus is that something will happen to force us off the course we would rather stay on. Because we are individuals and different, the weight that bears down on us from these incidents differs and none of us can make a judgement call on the other person that a load is too easy or hard to bear. We endure our load alone but with help from God or his agents (friends, family and a good book). The book My Hope is Built is an encouraging and pleasant reminder that there is a link between whatever you are going through and Gods purpose for your life.
