This book was really begun in 1963 when I attended a creative writing course in college. Having been an avid reader all my life it seemed a great way to see a story from the writer’s perspective. It became a comfortable, relaxing escape. Most of my inspirations came unexpectedly through dreams. Some of the stories took place over several nights. There is really no on going theme in this book. Rather a randomness of thoughts. This book contains, in a sense, an analysis of sadness, love, anger and frustration. As well a child’s view of simplistic events. I wrote these poems and stories because I wanted to. I published them in a book because I can.
