Here I SitBook - 1996
For RenC) Fumoleau, on place is immune to the Spirit's presence. This collection of peoms and stories (including six recent poems) makes that clear. Priest, poet, photographer, and resident with the Dene people, Fumoleau presents a trove of accessible wisdom. The reader is invited into a journey of self-discovery and relationship with a beautiful people who have taught Fumoleau at least as much as he has taught them. In the beauty of creation, in the pangs of conscience, in the pain and joy of human life, Fumoleau shows how one grows into the freedom of truly being oneself. With irony and wit, the poet points to the power of Life over Death as the mysterious basis of experience itself. Neither pious nor sentimental, "Here I Sit will speak to those both inside and outside the church. Priests, the homeless, bureaucrats, bingo players--"all encounter the humour, compassion, and discerning eye of Rene Fumoleau.
