Eskova Enterprises is pleased to announce and celebrate the release of Barbara Raphael's new book of poetry, Dancing on Uneven Ground.  
Barbara Raphael’s deeply personal poetry faces grief and aging, nature and love head on.
Dancing on Uneven Ground reveals her depth of feeling through poems that give voice to a life rich with nuance.
Her landscape encompasses the experiences of loss as she moves through the shifting shades of grey in this not so black and white world.

"Dancing on Uneven Ground celebrates, weeps for and touches ever so lightly the life cycles in our day to day moments of hope, loss, despair and love. In these poems, Barbara Raphael allows us to glimpse a vulnerable well of insight and feeling living in the heart of a strong and independent woman who is compelled to love, and therefore to see. May we all be blessed with such a friend."    - Ann Mortifee

BARBARA RAPHAEL has been writing in one form or another for as long as she can remember. This is her first collection of poems.
She was born in Vancouver, and despite having traveled the world lives there still, dividing her time between the city and the Sunshine Coast.
For many years Barbara was a counsellor and an educator. Now, as a Life-Cycle Celebrant she combines her collective talents to create unique ceremonies for life’s many passages.
She is fortunate in her community of friends, and values them beyond all else.
She loves dogs but doesn’t have one.
