Life Is Conscious is the compilation of quarterly seasonal essays written through the unique view of a Botanist. A rich and thoughtful mix of fact and metaphor can be expected throughout this unique, keen look into the possibility of creating a world where people coexist in peace, health, happiness, and respect for the planet. Readers may be pleasantly surprised to be humorously yet astutely compared to other living things: potted plants, wild growing trees, sprawling vines, the tortoise, the hare, honeybees, and other engaging comparisons. Owen’s unique blend of metaphor and fact make his recipe for a peaceful world difficult to dispute. He merrily invites people to consider their actions before they choose, to consider the ramifications of these choices, and to acknowledge that what we do affects the whole world because we are all connected. Whether a plant enthusiast, animal lover, health nut, peace activist, or just an individual who simply desires something different, Life Is Conscious has something for everyone.
