This book is about coming into your own amidst the adversities of life’s changing mores and morrows. It offers a challenge to brave the vicissitudes of life With equanimity, standing on your own feet, both feet ﬁrmly planted in terra ﬁrrna, rather than depending on the support of the world around you. You would ﬁnd yourself rise to the challenge by bringing into play all your resources, material, ﬁnancial et al, but most speciﬁcally, the strength of your mind and will, the clarity of your thoughts and imaginations and your skill at communicating, relating and interacting.
Time And Tide
This is a poem book inspired by a love of history and affection for interesting places and customs. The book is divided into three parts. The first part, footprints through time, reflects on interesting people and events throughout the past two thousand years. The second part, echoing places, recalls fascinating sights and scenes which have poignant associations. The third part, random recollections, contains an assortment of memories and observations. The poems vary in style and length and it is hoped that every reader will find something to enjoy in this collection.
shades within shadows
we live under the shadow of rulers, religion and ritual; of childhood fears, adult realities and hovering death. we live in shadows of varying shades, from hues of darkening night, through lightening shades of gray, to brightest light. within these shades of many shadows, our stories sawn and mature, some sad, some happy, some tragic, mostly soon forgotten, but some preserved and written about. shades within shadows tells one such tale of an entire community sucked into a maelstrom that devastates and nearly destroys them.
