"You have written your soul with this book, it feels like sacred ground. I am stunned by its raw honesty and amazing photographs in this heartfelt material. I am grateful and honored that you shared this soulful, artistic creation. Many of the writings feel cathartic to me - you are very brave to explore your feelings so honestly and I believe you will touch readers experiencing similar struggles...
Thank you for sharing and I truly hope you never stop writing."

"Not only is this book filled with beautiful photos - it's filled with beautiful strong words; expressing a multitude of feelings and sentiments that mirrored many of my own. I have recommended this book to friends and family who I feel will all get something heartwarming and meaningful from it. Sharka, you are an amazing and wonderfully poetic soul and I want to thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with me."

"The lady is a photographer, poet, naturalist and seeker; but most of all, she is a modern-day alchemist. She has used both alembic and crucible to extract flecks of gold and fragrant attars of life. Her trails (and trials) up to her many Half Dome experiences were haunted by pain and passion, but ultimately Love. One does not sit down and read, "After the Sunset", like Gibran's "Prophet", restraint must be exercised lest one experience a spiritual overload. Great job spirit-sister! You rock! Thanks for sharing your walk with us. Love from the Biodesign family."
- Lowell Y.
"I bought this book for my daughter's birthday and she
absolutely loved it. What a gem! Every page has a
full color photograph to transport you into a breathtaking
natural surrounding. In fact, it feels as if Nature herself
spoke through the author. Emotionally charged with a perfect balance between love, joy, sorrow and wisdom.
A beautiful collection to decorate any coffee table!"
