The poems selected for this book were gathered from a larger collection that remains on paper napkins, Air Canada puke bags, restaurant menus, hotel stationery and the like. Some of my critics might quip-and perhaps justifiably-that it might have been better if they were left there. I make no claim to be a poet. I am simply driven by some inherent passion to pen words to paper especially when I'm travelling on long trips. My words tumble out on whatever is at hand and generally stay in the state they were created.
