Save me from myself.
“Carla Golian’s THE ICON is a religious, spiritual, historical, romance tale all masterfully wrapped up in a mystery novel. THE ICON lures you in with the main character’s personal secret and then leads you on her journey for answers, paying it all off as well as any movie.
While reading THE ICON, you’ll feel as if you’ve been swept away to Paris. And when you’ve finished the book, you’ll be questioning your own place in the universe. A fun and thoughtful read. “
~ Jason Filardi, writer of Bringing Down the House and 17 Again
I’m happy to share a review of The Icon by the lovely Aimee Ann.
“Readers now and then will come across that one book that blows them away and The Icon was that book for me. This is thanks to the unique premise, unlike anything I have read of or heard before.”

As the dust settles with the wind,
So my pen rises to settle the words wanting escape from this institution my body and mind have become.
No one direction, merely an exhalation of my emotions, a resurrection in deep need.
In the dichotomy of fragility and stubbornness, they float in limbo.
The heartbeats which beat disguise of pain or premonition.
Squeezed into a chamber, crying out for exhalation and resurrection.

Passes by, passing me by,
I watch, as the train goes by.
Hoping it’s not my life,
Passing me by.
Sitting on the outside, looking in.
A couple of days after I drew up a sketch for this painting, on August 11, a train traveling from Cairo crashed into another in Port Said in Alexandria. It was an unfortunate tragic accident. Goes to show that sometimes, it’s not so bad being on the outside looking in.

I try to let go, to let go, to let go,
And to let go some more.
I try to hang on,
To the faith, to the hope, the beauty
I try to hang on,
To the promise that no one made,
The promise of the promised land.
The divine paradise.
What is God? Who am I? Why am I here?
These are questions Victoria has been endlessly trying to answer all her life.
Things take a turn when she comes across a book, “La Très Sainte Pyramide.” The three centuries old writer and alchemist, The Count of Saint Germain, has authored the book.
Is it real? Is he alive? Is the book legitimate or is it a scam?
Victoria sets out to answer!
