In his masterpiece "Horatio in the Wind," J.D. Oldenburg confronts incredibly human sensations of love, attachment, courage and fear. Life, death and the wind. A story for all ages. The kind that can be told forever and still the meaning lives on and on... The writing and illustrations of this book embody the sort of eloquence and ease you might expect from a story that weaves itself and the soundtrack transports you into a different world. With a potent mix of innocence and darkness, Oldenburg demonstrates the kind of storytelling which inspires others to dig deep and share their own.

Horatio in the Wind is imbued with a deeply inspired message regarding the fear of dying, and ultimately coming to embrace death with full peace, grace and understanding. It is easily approachable and soothing for all ages, bringing light to a topic that would make lives easier if we spoke about it more often and didn’t leave it in the shadows.
