Longo asks “What is your Egological Footprint?
An allegorical tale about being a part of a rising consciousness. Longo maintains there can be a “masterpeace”; we can intuitively help one other to resolve issues in order to not remain one’s own, or another’s arduous albatross. By creating calm, we celebrate civility.

New York author Liz Longo using birds of Australia to glide one along a poetic path to unravel a soul’s angst as it offered havoc to his grey cockatiel self and others. The poet puts one in touch with an inner poetic nature that we have that rouses soulful dialogue, such is what is needed to be reached, spoken to, to resolve inner and outer conflicts.

“In time a tug of war will fade to civility,
As one meets life with cordial affability,
As new cycles of compassion
replace old cycles of duress.”

On life’s angst....

“In flew a moment of time,
Before sorrow clawed on,
A time blissful and still,
I reset my soul to that,
Not to forget to relieve the pain
.....and tell that I will to the future,
Not in anger but in peace.”

Refreshing is a poet writing for the progression of peaceful human ways. We may ignore that little bird fluttering that flutters in our subconscious, but these bird enjoy the light of the day on bettering our own human nature.

In a juxtaposition, Longo gives the Albatross a voice on the albatross of nature itself - a-hem, but then goes forward to say “We are reviving the health of the physical global environment, people can in-kind renew themselves to bring the world less chaos. Simple pragmatic suggestions made to living more naturally amid nature are the breath of fresh air.

Create calm - celebrate civility.

Author Liz Longo is a native New Yorker. Her Italian family arrived on Ellis Island in the start of the 1900’s with two simple dollars and not a word of English. The boat broke down on the way but that’s another story. As a result, Liz very much relates to and appreciates the ever changing population, bringing new smiles, flavors and spices to the city.

The Bird and Its Albatross was inspired by the New York Public Library’s French Book Art/Livres D’Artists, Artist and Poets in Dialogue exhibit in 2006 of artist collaborations between 1874 and 1999. Liz maintains “The merge of art forms reveals the beautiful depth of humanity’s soul, we can collaborate peace...a masterpiece, if we are supportive of each other’s simple existence.”

The illustrations for A Bird and It’s Albatross: a Tale of Renewal, features Australian birds, are acrylic on paper by the author.
