“Twenty Poems 20 Paintings A Creative Warrior’s Journal” is a beautiful tool in helping to identify feelings, hopes, and desires, no matter where you are on your journey back to wellness.  Through the writing prompts I was able to get in touch with all I had been dealing with in the past and currently with cancer.  I found it invaluable and enlightening.  I especially loved reading how Rick dealt with his struggles.  He is an amazing poet and artist!  I felt like a warrior after using this book to help lengthen my survivorship and be comfortable with writing and drawing again. I am so grateful that Rick opened up his heart and created this book!”
