About the Book
In it I share with you some of the miracles that happen around us each and every day. The little things, things that we sadly either take for granted or are far too busy to notice or enjoy. The book is filled with beautiful images and unique and entertaining short stories. My personal observations and / or take on a particular situation or member of the natural world. It is my way of sharing with you, and cracking the door open just a bit, it up to you to decide if you’re going step through it or not.
Yep, I’m a baby boomer; born and raised near Cincinnati, Ohio. I hale from middle class America, a true, blue collar family, son of a carpenter and stay-at-home mom. My parents, both gone now, came from rather poor families, and grew-up during the Great Depression both reaching adulthood just in time to do their part in World War II. We didn’t have much when I was growing up, but hey, not many people did. As small boys tend to do, I loved playing in the woods and bringing home every manner of “creepy crawler” (as my mom called ‘em) I could lay my hands on. If it wiggled, crawled, flew, or swam across the face of the earth, I likely had one as a child. Surely, it was my mother’s reluctant acceptance of her son’s curiosity that cultivated my interest and love of nature. Through the years, I have carried this fascination and love of nature with me into manhood and outside of my family, it is still my biggest source of strength and enjoyment in life.
