Hitchhiking around the country, I met and talked with many different kinds of people, living an “On the Road” type of life. I’ve worked all kinds of jobs including mowing lawns, digging clams, staff at a nuclear power plant under construction, building pre-fabricated houses, inspecting houses, selling real estate and a career in aviation. My employment at Pan American World Airways opened my eyes to new wonders, new cultures and travel around the world. I continued my career in aviation and my travels continued as well. I have always loved studying literature and wrote for myself for my entire life.
Many years ago, I realized the power of language, how some words or word combinations are much more powerful than others. I am still intrigued that mere words, symbols on a page, can make us laugh or cry or empathize or hate; take us through the spectrum of emotion. I appreciate the fact that language brings order, provides details and is the primary tool in education.
Politics in America have become so polarized, so contentious and frankly so bizarre that I felt that the only way I could do anything to express myself in the sea of madness in which we live, was to write this book. I hope that it has a positive impact on readers and at the same time, is entertaining. Enjoy!
