This book is a collection of my poetry over the years inspired by the life I have led working in the care setting and traveling all over the world. I hope you enjoy my work and may find it useful to use in the right settings, for instance "Those in Grief" has been used in funerals. My life has been rather colorful to say the least, and I have been in a few situations facing danger and adventure, bringing me to the present day. Now at sixty-three, I can reflect on this and laugh at the funny events and sigh with relief at actually surviving other situations. I consider each event as a blip in my life and nothing more. Yes, I do have nightmares from my worst experiences as a teenager, but I just thank God that I survived to tell the tale.
