About the Book
The book asks all the big questions and provides answers with compassion and emotional wit: what the world looks like; how it works; what the world promises; and how that promise gets fulfilled. It’s a story-essay wrapped in a poetic guise through which the author reaches for a bit of insight into the character of reality alongside the anticipation of birth.
Writer/Artist/Designer—Dale McNutt grew up in Western Pennsylvania, and now lives in Uptown—a transitional urban neighborhood perched on a bluff high above the Monongahela River in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He lives and works with his wife, Jeanne, Executive Director of Uptown Partners. They surround themselves with as many youthful “change-makers” as they can — young entrepreneurs, designers and product developers — in a 13,000 sf renovated building that’s both studio and home, and home to StartUptown/Avenu/now named 5thAVE STUDIO —urban incubator and co-working site for technology and social innovation — helping to ensure success for early-stage startup businesses and community redevelopment.
