Making Tracks & Changing - -Poetry & Inspirational stuff- (ebook)
"Making Tracks & Changing" - Poetry & Inspirational Stuff - has two parts to it. Half of this small book is dedicated to 10 poems written by George Czerny at different times in his life and dating back almost 50 years (yes, the author has a lot of grey hair!). In the second half of this book, Czerny provides inspirational suggestions for how a person can change her, or his, life for the better. Czerny stresses that he has no professional qualifications for making such suggestions; but -says he - provides his suggestions based on his life experiences. He was once a street kid who turned his life around. "Making Tracks & Changing" is one of the smallest books you will find and - at least in the author's eyes - one of the most meaningful. And yes, at one time in his life, the author did ride freight trains! The front cover photograph of this book was taken by the author on a railway track just north of Parry Sound, Ontario. The rear-cover photograph was taken on the day that the last steam train to visit Collingwood, Ontario, came to town. That photograph shows the front of steam engine number 6060 in juxtaposition with the stern of the freighter "Algoport" which was at the now-closed Collingwood Shipyards. That day was June 2, 1979.
Czerny's poetry ranges from the look-back-on-life "Realization" to the supportive "July 14" and his takes on "Trust" and "Life". Some of the poems you might find yourself re-reading, or taping to your fridge door.
