This collection of verse spans Pamela's years beginning with "Baptism in Ellen's Creek" in the 1980s (when she was in her mid-thirties) to, "Stranger in the Looking Glass" while in Vancouver in the 1990s, and "God in the Hallway, Christ on the Stairs" written this year. It celebrates friendship and humor and, as always reflects Pamela's empathy to those who suffer and remain beyond her reach.
"Pause for Thought" will join earlier collections from Pamela in a series of verse created from daily living and faith in God.
