An Evocative and Philosophical Complement to Casey's Raw Thoughts Series

Casey’s masterful compositions engage the soul, leaving a lasting impact that lingers far beyond the final pages”
— THOMAS ANDERSON, Editor-In-Chief, Literary Titan
SAN ANTONIO, TX, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2023/ -- For many, it somehow becomes easier to adhere to the mystical, to the cryptic and the Kafkaesque when confronted with a thousand disparate pieces of life because we sense it would be impossible to comprehend the grand sum of it all, or how those pieces even interconnect. Consequently, we feel we cannot come to understand the individual parts. John Casey’s poetic philosophy of Things suggests that we can. That life is much simpler than most perceive. The human condition is not so confusing as it seems.

NOT AN ARCHETYPAL 'POETRY COLLECTION’: John Casey’s vision for his poetic debut 'Raw Thoughts' was to create something that redefined the concept of a poetry book. A book that can be found in the ‘Mindfulness and Meditation’ section of a library or bookstore. Within, each poem is symbiotically paired with a full-page photograph. Each poem-photo pairing is a ‘raw thought,’ and together, the whole of the book is much greater than the sum of its individual parts. With 'Meridian,' Casey took this concept one step further, and with 'Things of Little Consequence,' he does so again. Though there is no photography in Things, he infused the same Zen principles and underlying themes of emotive understanding and critical thought within. What makes Things different than the Raw Thoughts Series, and perhaps makes it better in some ways (for some), is its heavy emphasis on positive outcomes, simplicity, and serenity via a metaphysical questioning of the accuracy of reality.

"John Casey has written something of worth beyond its appeal to poetry lovers. In reflectively probing what it means to be human, Things of Little Consequence both realizes and transcends a work of exceptional art. FIVE STARS." – CONSTANCE STADLER, READERS' FAVORITE

"By encouraging readers to embrace the interconnectedness of life and the coherence amidst seemingly intricate circumstances, Casey challenges conventional perspectives. For those seeking a book that ignites both the intellect and the heart, Things of Little Consequence is undoubtedly a must-read. Casey’s masterful compositions engage the soul, leaving a lasting impact that lingers far beyond the final pages. FIVE STARS." – THOMAS ANDERSON, LITERARY TITAN
