About the composer
A spiritual being having a human experience, Ed Shapiro composes this blog and this book as one who combines parts – words, thoughts, images – into a whole.
“The whole is more than the sum of its parts.” –Aristotle
In his human experience as an image maker off the dream merchant flagship, Madison Avenue, Ed uses the creative tools of the craft, principally metaphor, to make all the parts fall into place.
“The whole of nature is a metaphor of the human mind.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
You could say he’s a dreamer, but you could say that of all spiritual beings having a human experience.
“Dreams are true, while they last. And do we not live in dreams?” –Alfred Lord Tennyson
Ed’s compositions are for beings who are ready to laugh at their only-human self-image, and wake up laughing.
“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” –Henry David Thoreau
