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, commercial clamming, construction of cable television systems, staff at a nuclear power plant under construction, building pre-fabricated houses, inspecting houses, selling real estate and an entire 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 emotions. 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! (I created this book in 2007 and find it very interesting that it is even more relevant today than when it was written.)
