This book consists of fifty-two poems, aphorisms, essays, and presentations from a Catholic Renewal. Here you'll find one man's thoughts, perhaps representing others. Writing serves as a form of renewal. We share our humanity and spirituality. We become friends.Poetry succinctly expresses ideas instantiated into a form. In few words a snapshot appears, like waving a Polaroid Instant in the air and watching the image materialize. If pressed for time, read poetry.Arriving home, my son would ask, "What You'd Buy Me?" Every commercial exacted, "I need this"-not "I want this", but an existential necessity. Children grow up, ending their play-all-day phase. They leave us with a lot of memories. Life's experiences weave through these works, but "What you'd buy me?" still makes me laugh. Although a bit childish, deep down we continue to hope someone bought us a gift. I also hope that you enjoy my work.
