Listen To The Show (Tuesday, May 29 at 10 AM CT) 

​“I Give My Eyes...” is both spiritual autobiography and a story of healing and salvation.  Author, artist, and museum curator Brian H. Peterson looks back on a creative life and reflects on his own search for the deeper layers, the “substrata.”  In luminous, poetic prose, he ties together private and public, inward and outward journeys, struggling with the realities of advancing Parkinson’s disease while discovering an affirmation of belief that embraces suffering and doubt.  “Somewhere there, in the middle, in the air between us, a door opens and a breath, a zephyr of love flows through.  Invisible, fleeting, but is there anything more real?  Anything more, somehow, permanent?”
