Joan Ellen Gage launches the Rose Edition of her book, Water Running Downhill, Words of Empowerment!, on 11/6/2015

Rose Helena Macedo Kull

This week I published the Rose Edition of Water Running Downhill, Words of Empowerment! This edition is a project that had been on the back burner for a while. Rose’s passing jump-started me to create the new version of Water Running Downhill! (WRDH), honoring this  wonderful, inspiring woman.

The spirit of WRDH contains passages that will speak to women of the foibles of aging, growth, joy, humor, and self-love.I hope my readers enjoy the new book, which contains reworked photos, and two new poems.

May peace be with you, and your troubles be few, and don’t forget to travel at the speed of now! Here is a poem from the new edition, enjoy!



There are no

Guarantees or refunds

And no exchanges

You have to take it

As it is

A slight modification

May be possible

But, beyond that

What you see is

What you get

There may be

Surface imperfections

Due to materials used

And the contents

May have settled

During handling

But each piece is

An individually crafted

Unique work of art

A truly one of a kind

Human being
