About the Author
A poet of many styles and diversity can take a lifetime to develop. Kevin’s early attempts at poetry were ignored in favor of the cheers of his high school athletic accomplishments, and later everyday life accomplishments, such as staying employed. He eventually married and started a family, at which time he began writing in earnest. Divorced by 30, he spent over 20 years on the road in a sales job in the beautiful states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Dakotas.
Through endless hours on the road, and myriads of motel rooms, with his great admiration for Dan Fogelberg an inspiration, the evolution of a poet was in full swing.
A patient observer of natural environments and people, he used the long hours of windshield time, the beautiful land he traveled through and the thousands of people he met as inspiration to develop a wide range of poetic styles, which sometimes include a sneaky sense of humor.
The diversity of Kevin’s writing offers something for everyone, and as he has been told many times, even those who think they don’t like poetry.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

This quote from the editorial review accurately summarizes my thoughts about this book. I found the poems very enjoyable, especially the ones about the changes in seasons and about nature. I also really enjoyed the observations that the author made about various topics that we experience in our everyday lives. The author displays his unique sense of humor in these observations.
I thought that his reflections of the special relationship he had with his grandmother are priceless. His description makes you wish that you knew this special person.
This is a book that I found very easy and enjoyable to read and it's also one that you could go back and read all or segments of it many times.
