Vineyard Serenity combines the breathtaking beauty of Martha's Vineyard together with some of the greatest wisdom from authors of recent years. In addition to quotes and stories, I tell some of my story - the difficulties of recovering from addiction and the true meaning of serenity. The book was written to benefit recovery groups on Martha's Vineyard to pay back kindnesses offered to me that are not always available to others. This is a photo book with a message and a purpose. Beautiful landscapes and geographies guarantee nothing in terms of personal happiness and fulfillment. True long-lasting inner peace is achieved by simple and selfless acts of kindness towards others.
