The author has had life experiences not unlike many of us. Over time, the author has used the many experiences lived between the swings of the pendulum from strife to joy to escape through windows of wonder to mental islands of imagination in words. It often seemed that the heavier the weight, the harder the press of the pencil to paper. The author shares how much hope there is for what should or could be. It is an ebb and flow toward a love for hope for love. Love from the inside out that is rich and has spiritual depth, whether it is for family or a mate. Throughout this sojourn of sentences, one may find a kindred thought to dwell on and be provoked to a good next moment.
