Loretta and Zura reviewing the book, overlooking Washington D.C.
Thank you very much for giving me a copy of your wonderful book last night. I read it this morning in one sitting--couldn't put it down. Your narrative made me almost feel what you were going through during each stage of your journey with your father, Rick and Zura. Long before the end, I reached the conclusion that although you call Zura friend, I think he is also the son your and Rick chose.
Piece of Soul Through the Heart is a beautifully written book that allows us to see more clearly our ability to connect with others. I whole-heartedly enjoyed reading about the author's travel to The Republic of Georgia and the emotions associated with the absence of a loved one - in this case, a young immigrant returning home after years away. Loretta Herrington has truly captured the beauty of human relationships through stories of loss, family and the hope of a young man trying to achieve his American dream.

Welcome to Myblog:
"Turn The Page"
In my book “Piece of Soul through the Heart a Soul’s Journey” I wrote about a chance encounter that Zura had while sitting in front of his apartment building in Tbilisi, Georgia. This brief encounter with a stranger put his life in a new direction that took him to the United States and to me nine years ago. Did you ever have a chance meeting - like Zura did - that changed your thinking? Souls are sent to us for a reason…open up, allow them to enter your life, learn from them.
Even chance meetings are the result of karma… Things in life are fated by our previous lives. That even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence.
Towards the end of my book, I write about how souls can recognize each other from past lives. For Zura (the main character) and me, that recognition is a scar. We both have burn scars on our right hands between the thumb and forefinger. According to Dr. Brian L. Weiss, MD, a prominent psychiatrist in past-life therapy, scars are a way of recognizing a soul from the past. I am forever connected to someone from my past because I chose to be.
Call to Duty
My book tells the story of a call to duty. My father, a WWII veteran, required 24/7 caregiving at the end of his life – a duty that I was not prepared to do. Little did I know that taking care of my father would bring to me someone from my past. My world was rocked! My duty now is to guide this soul in this lifetime so that he can advance and bring others along. This is what old souls do.
Where does my inspiration come from?
People who read my book ask me this question again and again - where did I find the inspiration to write a personal story about family and someone who entered my life from a past life when I least expected it? Inspiration can come from anywhere or anyone. It could be a single word, prayer, book, person or image. When you will feel its pull, trust your gut and go with it. Inspire others…take them along with you and watch them light up.
