Blame it on the Moon is a collection of new poetry from Lisa Shatzky that speaks in a myriad of ways to the experience of wanting and needing more fullness of life and the imperative of each of us to become ourselves as fully as we are able. The voice in these poems is witty, vulnerable, passionate, and sharp. Some of the poems show us the losses and perils of midlife, of lost love, lost opportunities, and the frightening recognition that sometimes our sense of who we thought we were - our identity - no longer sustains the larger person inside of us. Other poems point to new doors and possibilities and our longing for deeper contact and intimacy in our relationships with others.
