OUT OF MY MIND is a delightful, eclectic collection of engaging narratives by author Martha Wood. These were developed as the author's mind was, as she puts it, "Set free to play."
Written in short story style, some of the anecdotes are amusing, as in Funny Names, or Things I Always Wanted to Do, But Thank God I Haven't; some serious like It Shouldn't Hurt..., or The N Word; some fictional such as Elizabeth, the Queen, or Treasures from the Attic; some poignant as in No One Ever Says, "Hi," or Where Sorrow and Gladness Meet; while yet others are instructive like Dealing with the Odor, and Until We Eat Again. For a little mystery, there is The Gunslinger, and Congratulations on a Dedicated Life. All, though, give voice to thoughts set free and permitted expression.

This collection of narratives is mind-provoking, amusing at times, innocent and a good read. I intend to buy several for gifts. Martha Wood is honest and transparent as she in her mature years, shares her viewpoint and life.
