Synopsis of the book “Enrique Piana y su Media Valija”
The pages of this book try to deal with the most important topics of existence. That is why three chapters of this book are about love between man and woman. Another three are about my mystic and illuminating experience when making the pilgrimage along the French Way to Santiago de Compostela in 2014, and the incredible characters I met on the way. There are several chapters about how I lived a life of luxury before my arrest and was later reborn by letting myself be carried away by the “River” of life. I myself die in one of my poems disclosing my emotions behind my own epitaph. I speak with God in poems about life and love that I have performed live to some very receptive audiences in Europe. In other chapters, I speak about my shame, selfishness and the egocentric irresponsibility of my former life; describe the pleasure-seeking that was at the heart of my money addiction; recount my days in one of the worst prisons in the USA and under house-arrest; speak about global poverty and apologize to the hungry children of the world; speak up for a woman’s role and rights; reveal my experience with sex and Tantra; comment on political crisis and international violence; explain my own methods of meditation and my search for Truth. I tell how I got the love of my family back, and how I play with my children like a child even nowadays. Many other topics in “Enrique Piana and Half of His Suitcase” reveal me as a man who has totally recreated himself in body and soul under the light of a mystic number that is magically present in all the poems: 7.
