"Make poetry your religion, everything will line up gently. Believe me: the planets have a song." JM 
One of the most prolific poet of our times, Canadian poet Jean Mercier has written 225 books or 22,500 pages of poetry to date (as of February 8, 2022). 

" I believe that literacy and kindness are the ultimate answers to everything. The richness of everyone's heritage makes the world a greater place! English is my 2nd language and it granted me not only a career, but more over, dear friends all over the world."   Jean Mercier, Poet and Filmmaker 
I realize now that everything that I did - or contributed to - for the last 30 years was about my friend who committed suicide. It profoundly affected and changed me forever and this journey will likely never end. I have committed as an artist in my professional life, to specialize in "feel good" books, poetry, television productions, films and other creative work. We hope that any of our work - films or books - can also help you and your loved ones to celebrate the love that is right here inside your heart. Please, if for any reason you need some comfort, I want you to know that you are not alone. Reach out to someone, I am begging you. It is OK to ask for help. Everybody goes through hard times. Close your eyes for a minute and think of someone who loves you or someone who made a difference in your life. The rest is irrelevant and you can tackle any problem. Let this love guide you against all odds. Do not hesitate to ask us any question! I always try to answer every email. Hugs good day!
