A Respite in Time allows you to escape and find a quiet refuge as you immerse yourself in the author's comments on life. These are relayed through short vignettes, which consist of small snippets of life captured in words. They include kernels of wisdom garnered from life experiences; descriptions and observations generated from travel adventures; and heart-warming interactions with loved ones and strangers. At times you will smile, and other times you will ponder. There is also woven into the content a universal, spiritual strand regarding life's journey and the understanding that evolves. The book is organized so that it can be read non-sequentially, start in the front, the middle or back if you desire. The vignettes first appeared in my newsletter, the Poetical Journal, which is distributed to thousands of subscribers in seventy-two countries and all fifty states. As you read, we will be having a private conversation - a social interaction - my words and your thoughts and reactions. Where they take you will be your personal adventure.
A Respite in Time ultimately speaks to a mystical, quiet place where water for the soul is plentiful. As you read through these personal stories, you may be reminded of similar experiences. May you smile. In this high stress world where almost everything is time driven - rush . . . rush - may you also discover moments of respite and calmness.
