TEBOT MIRRORS COVER FINAL

House of Mirrors

"Stephen McDonald reveals the sacred that’s in everything around us. He finds God in a sowbug, in a blue-belly lizard whose eyes are deep as every unanswered question, and in his hands, even starting up a lawn mower is a kind of prayer, a recognition that the grass is long,/your time is short. "  Ellen Bass, award-winning author of Mules of Love
