A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Metamorphosis – 2 November 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

Today I want to tell you about a wonderful new book of poetry: Metamorphosis – Poems to Inspire Transformation by Vegan Poet (chosen pen name of M. Katz) who has “been spreading the word about the many benefits of a vegan lifestyle for three decades” and co-authored Incredibly Delicious; Recipes for a New Paradigm by Gentle World.

A professional vegan chef, she also spreads the vegan message by publishing informative articles such as “Vegan-Organic Gardening” and “Dogs Can Be Vegan, too!” and is also a full-time volunteer for a non-profit educational organization.

These thought-provoking poems, each illustrated with an applicable color photo and comment, truly inspire the positive change that is, after all, the purpose of our lives here on earth.

One of the many thoughts in this precious book that spoke to my heart is found in the last two lines of Vegan Poet’s poem titled “My Mission”:

“I am a self-appointed missionary
seeking to convert every part of me.”

I could go on and on praising this absolutely fabulous book; but don’t simply take my word for it, order one for yourself. I’m sure you’ll agree with me and want to buy copies for friends and family, too.

From the book:

“Thought-provoking poetry and photos that speak of animal, environmental, and human rights, written by a 30 year vegan.”
