As the gleanings of a life, the poems in this collection defy characterization. Humor gives way to discovery, loss to gain, relationship to solitude, questioning to certainty, rural Vermont to Central Park, an ocean beach to the ice bound Arctic, triumph to tragedy, innocence to knowledge, fantasy to reality, disappointment to delight and, in every case, vice versa. "And what is meant? Words fall short, perhaps, misfire or fit, but always as if by accident." - From "Taylor Head Beach," page 62. Well, it may seem "by accident" but is it? These poems seem engaged in a quest, but the quest itself may be the answer. And even if the quest itself is an accident, it is also an adventure, a struggle and even a celebration. Perhaps it just is.
