Through personal poetry, pictures, and prose, these pages bring to life some of the author's favorite memories of her relationship with Ron Martin, a.k.a. The Ronald. Few people in this world ever get a fantasy glimpse of their life illustrated in such an elegant, eloquent manner.

This intimate journey illustrates playfulness, passions, and places, while reflecting on their many adventures, celebrations, and friends. Take a fantastical trip with The Ronald, as seen through Cathy's gleefully rose-colored glasses.

It marks the flip-side, "The Zonald," which exposes that Zon emerges opposite Zen. Yet love endures through trials and his inner demons.
