Books

Title: Thinning of the Veils
Publisher: Drum Talk/June 2018
Genre: Poetry

Thinning of the Veils is a work of spiritual, socially-relevant poetry and memoir. Drawing on personal life experiences, the author weaves a spell of tactile-felt memories that have been instrumental in his growth in awareness. Intermingled with observational looks at patterns of human activity, its poems suggest correlations and differentness uncommonly entertained about conscious and unconscious states.

Title: Sitting with Warrior
Publisher: iUniverse 2010, rev. 2013
Genre: Historical Memoir / Myth

As a Marine Corps veteran of an unpopular and divisive war, Carl Hitchens contends that Sitting with Warrior chronicles not only his journey, but America’s as well. By sitting and listening to Warrior’s wisdom, he has recovered a lost part of himself. This gives America hope for stepping out of the long shadow of Vietnam that today stretches over Iraq and Afghanistan. Hope that by sitting with Warrior and his unifying truth, America can heal her old wounds. Hope that she can draw from her pluralism and diversity unity rather than division—out of many, one.”

Title: Shades of Light
Publisher: iUniverse 2013 | Carl Hitchens 2013
Genre: Poetry Collection

An effusive, creative rendering of personal life experience in self-discovery. Each poem is a reflection of awakening to and witnessing the blending of light and darkness. We are light leavened into solid form. We are shades of consciousness, shades of light.
