Overview

Reverie Within is a reflection on the days I spent in college. I was in school at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York.

The book begins as I left college with only a few courses left to graduate. I found a place in the inner city area of Syracuse. It was the beginning of summer in the year 1976.

The place I got was rather small. So small that I used to lay in a closet. I was gratefully down the street from the apartment of a school friend of mine by the name of Tommy.

I am pictured in the beginning of the book at his place drinking cold beers in the heat of the evening.

As the story goes on I write about a video play I directed called Shadow of the Glenn. The actress and three actors I directed became fast friends. We spent a lot of time together including a visit to a spring fed lake on the side of town, swimming and barbecuing.

I make friends with my next door neighbor, whose name is Cindy. Together we leave our apartment building at 4:00 am in the morning to drive up to the mountains of upstate New York to go fishing.

I reach back in time to the year before and write about the girl I was in love with. Her name was Amy. It was a heart-crunching relationship: one that was hard to get over.

The later part of the book is the reading of a journal I kept on my trip to Europe. A trip I took to get away from Amy and everything else.

After reading the journal I decide its time to leave the Syracuse area for home. I tell a close friend named Tony "I'm going home." He agrees it's a good idea. After a big party with Tony I drive home, and the book ends with me pulling into my driveway in Parma Heights, Ohio.
