Overview

"...a collection of narration and poetry that is such a warming nostalgic trip back through Jim Parker's interesting life that it makes one wish to write something similar, to recapture the beauty we are afforded in our existence. It's a captivating package, written by a talented writer."
─ Robert Skimin, robertskimin.com, Author of many bestsellers.
"Jimmie Parker's collections of reflections are bilingual reflections of a well-lived life. Only a life well lived would yield this collection of observations that are eternal in their reach and poetic in their touch."
─ Arnold Garcia Jr., Editorial Page Editor, Austin American-Statesman.
This book is a memoir presented through a collection of prose, poetry, photographs, drawings, and a musical composition.
The first eight pieces are reflective of my feelings, insights, and concerns about certain aspects of the human condition: poverty, man's inhumanity to man, end of life issues, a search for meaning, and finding one's spiritual path.
From the love of a beautiful mother for her children, to the ins and outs of adult love, the next nine pieces, About Love, evoke universal experiences with love.
The eight pieces in Peace/War demonstrate a strong preference for peace over war. Facing death requires great courage, as does facing life.
The poem play in section four dramatizes the need for drastic change in the United States of America. My preamble touches on one's need to handle scarcity and to deal with conflict, both internally and externally; and, the need to find meaning and spirituality in one's life.
