      This is a book I read all the time it is a book of short poems and sayings that are enlightening and quixotic and utterly delightful You will find yourself laughing at how they describe people you know My favorite one that describes my husband I like animals in the abstract, he said What does that mean she asked It means that animal hair makes me queasy , he answeredI m might be paraphrasing but that s close and that perfectly describes my husband in so many ways, not just about animals

      I can t say enough about how beautiful Brian s writing is This collection of musings, ramblings, and poetry is full of the sort of simple, profound,and slap you in the face accurate observations on life with the purity of a child s voice or a sage s experience This is not a book to be read in an hour, though you certainly could It should be savored on the tongue, chewed slowly, and swallowed only after you have enjoyed thoroughly.

      Great fun to read with the whimsy childlike art inspiring both artistically and idealogically Quote carries a lot of suitcases but all of them are empty because she s expecting to completely fill them with life by the end of this trip then she ll come home sort everything out do it all again Veteran Traveller.

      This wonderful book of Brian Andreas short poems and artwork was a gift from my very good friend and author Brandice Schnabel For me, these poems and drawings evoke John Lennon s similarly quirky humor in his books In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works, though Andreas work is less absurdist than Lennon s.One of my favorites from this collection is called Western Mysticism It s much easier,he told me, ifyou like the partsyou like you likethe parts you don tlikeIs that some Easternthing I s [...]

      Brian Andreas has a quiet voice that really complements the book s message The main theme is that there is a soul that can not be seen, yet it hums through our bodies and in the earth Unlike a song, our souls are like lights, and that is why it is called Traveling Lights he s referring to people To flesh out his book, Brian analyzes our deepest, resonating thoughts in a most humanistic method through poetry and doodles splattered with mix matched water colors Each little passage pulses with the [...]

      Brian Andreas does a delightful job of conveying wisdom in a witty way I first learned of him when my sister bought me one of his pictures when I was her maid of honor Since then, I ve bought 6 pictures and several of his books.In Traveling Light, he provides wonderful illustrations and stories reflecting his outlook on life To give you an idea of his writing style, here are a few quotes from the book How many people can you love before it s too much she said I said I didn t think there was any [...]

      This was the first Andreas writing I ve been exposed to, and I think I am completely smitten One of those rush out and buy everything he s ever written kind of smittens.His poems are funny, simple and wise and the words ring truer than true It made me slow down and think about life and about my own use of words Smitten, I tell you PS I m not quite as taken by his art accompanying the poems, but who cares it s still a 5 star read

      I love this little book I met Brian at the LA Book Expo back in 2003 and I have been reading, gifting, and rereading this book ever since The short quotes and poems are all insightful and amusing I also love his Story People and have his Flying Woman hanging in my kitchen For a long time, she flew only when she thought no one else was watching.

    10. Tiffany says:

      I have 5 Brian Andreas books sitting on one of my nightstands I got them shortly after I bought my first house I was so inspired by them I also got 7 pieces of his watercolors framed These books are AMAZING for a quick note or burst of inspiration.
