About Joan Myles

Joan Myles has always been a child of wonder as well as a spiritual
seeker. When she lost her sight at the age of 12, these qualities and
writing poetry saved her from despair. And once she lost her sight, Joan’s spiritual seeking took on a deeper, richer dimension. No longer
was Divinity somewhere out there, hovering just out of reach. She feels God is Present, merely a whisper away, a breath, a sigh, a longing inside
each of us, an expression of wonder and delight and most emphatically, Love.

Joan earned a BA in elementary Education, a Master’s in Jewish
Studies, and spent 15 years teaching Hebrew and Judaics to third
through 6th graders. During that time, she also founded Yismehu, a
non-profit organization which provided free Jewish learning to blind
students nationwide via distance learning, and served as both textbook
developer and instructor for 7 years.

Joan and her husband raised four children together, and currently live
in Oregon, where she continues to delight in the wonders of Life
Divine, and in the magic of words.

One Glittering Wing is her second volume of poetry, following the 2019 publication of One With Willows.

Joan is delighted to hear from readers!

      Food For Thought

      We all are the Light, automatically. So we really don’t have to go too much further than that. We all have a Light within us – it is the Soul; it is that spark of God, of the Divine, that activates our consciousness.

      -John-Roger, DSS
