Summary
Spurred by the doctor's predictions of an early death, Wayne Stier stayed out in front of time until he left it all together. Stier grew up in Belle Plaine, Minnesota, in the 1950's and 60's. Diagnosed with testicular cancer in his early 20's, and given a less than 50% chance of 5-year survival, Wayne and his wife Mars decided to make the most of the time he had. From Zen cherry blossoms to Japanese theatre. From Hawaiian breathing lessons to Thai healers. Stars When the Sun Shines is the spiritual memoir of a man whose wisdom gains on him as he learns to trust his intuition. And, in the reading, we'll surely learn lessons of our own. Or as Stier lays down his hope, "The myth of my life is a metaphor for yours." His writing is informed by everyone he talked to, everywhere he went. This is a book that will make you laugh and think. Cry and love. Stier's writing burned through illusions to conclusions about a life so full he forgot he was dying...until he did, in Hawaii, May 30, 2009, just weeks after his 62nd birthday. A note from the publisher: I met Wayne Stier when I was 5 and he was 6. We grew up in the same town, both of us suspecting there must be more in the world. The first time I published his work was in our high school newspaper. The last time I saw him until a few weeks before he died he was telling me that the pop (soda) in my hand might exist in another plane in a different way or might not exist at all. The very last time I saw him we talked all night and planned at least three more books. I am beyond grateful to have met him. Saint, holy man, fool-all of those and more
