Unearthed from the bizarre and often visited but rarely (if ever) understood landscape between love and loss, life and death, "Relic of a Heart" reveals itself to readers as a small collection of poems, short stories, random thoughts with images of etchings, drawings, and salt prints. Upon closer inspection of this relic, one will find emotionally charged characters living through scenarios far from mundane and describing experiences surreal and dreamlike. A young woman steals milk from her neighbor's porch daily and notices, on each following morning, that the house has grown bigger for reasons unknown. A writer discovers that a single punctuation mark on his paper has taken on a life of its own. An amateur photographer finds an antique camera that creates miniature flesh and blood versions of her picture subjects. RoaH's central theme involves an examination of the self-searching that arises from an alienation in human relationships. The varied-length poems, short-short stories, and illustrations each represent the author/artist's changing perceptions of different time periods within his life, spanning from a decade-old past events to recent occurrences. Each piece of writing and image in this exoskeletal muscle pulses with its own take on the often taken quest for self, spiritualism, meaning, and love.
