In this delightful memoir of short stories and essays, the author uses the rural wisdom he gained in his youth to explain time, forgiveness, and the crush of change; and applies it the challenge of life in the big city. Here, there is history on a clothesline, wisdom in a thunderstorm, and appreciation in a car ride. His humor includes a wild turkey that lived in a doghouse with an old German Shepherd, escaped wild pigs, and the etiquette of trapping city mice. Follow the author as he explores the reverence of the beekeeper, the absolute quiet of the farm between dark and dawn, and compares today’s body-piercings to the nose jewelry used on the farm. The theme of the book reveals that each one of us wants to be loved, appreciated, and to contribute to life. But along the way we ignore our opportunities, and yet, life continually gives us second chances despite our inattentiveness. Read and enjoy the author’s appreciation of the richness of ourselves.
