This collection of poems represents writings composed by the author during the more mature years of his adult life. The poems are in a sense musings evoked by remembrances from his life, and introspective inquiries into their meanings (or lack thereof).
Call It a Life attempts to convey the joys and sorrows, the successes and failures, the anxieties and satisfactions that have characterized the author's life. He hopes these poems will awaken contemplative or emotional responses in whatever reader chances upon them: young or old, male or female, sophisticated or less so. Whether evoking concurrence, or demurral, or disagreement-whether resulting in anger, empathy, cynicism-he hopes the poems will resonate within the reader in some fashion.
Ultimately, the poems in Call It a Life have no didactic objective. They ask only that the reader engage them, and beyond that, merely "go with the flow".
