The Following was Submitted by the Abbot Public Library
The Abbot Public Library in Marblehead will host world traveler Meg Pier, on Wednesday, July 17th, at 7:00 pm, as she presents a multimedia talk, ?From Curacao to Estonia,? to celebrate her new book, "Visions of Discovery." This evocative book pairs Pier?s photographs from ten countries with timeless quotes by the world?s great thinkers and her own thoughts on the common paths we take to find meaning in our lives. The book is designed to stimulate self-awareness, with pale chakra color bars gracing the seven sections of Beginning, Journey, Mindfulness, Faith, Acceptance, Belonging and Gratitude.
With colorful, heartfelt anecdotes, Pier's talk will touch on universal aspects of the human condition, in locales ranging from tropical jungles to mist-covered mountains. ?I used to see the journey as a means to an end. I asked, ?are we there yet?? until I was 50 years old,? Pier writes. ?Now I see it as a state of being; a dimension, like time and space. To me, it means awareness that I may see things differently further down the road.?
Copies of "Visions of Discovery" will be available for purchase and signing at the July 17th event.
Meg Pier departed a high-flying job in corporate P.R. several years ago to find herself in another jungle, literally and figuratively. Her new media platform now encompasses viewfromthepier.com, with blogs and interviews with philanthropic leaders including the head of UNESCO?s intangible cultural heritage division, the CEO of the U.N. Foundation, and the founder of the Global Heritage Fund; a new app for www.viewfromthepier.com in the Microsoft store, numerous articles for the Boston Globe, Huffington Post, and the website of CBS Travel Editor Peter Greenberg; and a handful of previously self-published books.
