That question soon becomes ours, as does the answer, though it remains unspoken until the book's final poem asks the question again and, in a voice expanding to include the whole earth and its inhabitants, even the angels, proclaims the answer in the soaring last lines of a communal hymn.

Tim Amsden's Vanishing Point has wit and pathos, wisdom and delight. These poems show the heart of a man who cherishes life and is not afraid to open himself to the larger questions of who and why we are in this complicated world. He moves seamlessly from intimate memory to the tenderness of loving his wife, to sharing life's simple moments, the ones that sustain us. With humor and honesty, Amsden takes us on a journey through the rooms of his life, where "...in my center nests a sliver of grace."
