Editorial Reviews

Review

As Glaciers Move by Joseph Whitson is a lovely book of poetry. It would seem that one is reading Whitson's most intimate details of his life, but in reality, one is reading his emotional responses to the various events. So rather than revealing specifics, he is revealing very intimate feelings. And feelings are, after all, subjective. Those who know me were astounded to find that I read, liked, and reviewed a book of poetry. I frequently find poetry to be trite, but As Glaciers Move by Joseph Whitson is a vast exception to that rule. I believe that anyone who likes introspective poetry will gain a lot from reading this book. It has certainly changed my perspective. - Mary C. Blowers, author of Prophecy of Enchatria (and 19 other books) and contributor to Reader's Digest and other magazines.

From the Back Cover

Joseph Whitson has been a carpenter, machinist, stay-at-home dad, computer technician, college instructor,  research scientist and business owner. He began writing poetry long before his first career and has continued beyond his last one, a period, so far, of 42 years, capturing experiences and observations along the way in his poems, a collection as diverse as his life. A few of Joseph's earliest poems, for example, reflect the ravages of war from his perspective, "the comforts of my parent's home in Germany," as he read about the Cambodian genocide and Khmer Rouge in the Stars and Stripes (an American military newspaper) in 1975. Many of his latest poems contemplate the meaning of life and the imminence of death. Other poems explore depression, religion, nature, and marriage. In addition to expanding his career options, Joseph's educational pursuits enriched him in ways that gave him many different opportunities and unique perspectives that come to life in his poems. He earned an Associate of Arts in English, a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences (with concentrations in Microbiology and Molecular Biology) and a Master of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology. Joseph's hobbies are also prevalent throughout his poetry. For example, when he was younger, his outdoor activities included alpine climbing, backpacking, and whitewater kayaking, and he used those explorations of the physical world metaphorically to explore topics entirely unrelated to the physical world in many of his poems. His hobbies now are less dangerous, such as gardening and amateur astronomy. However, even in his most recent poems, there is a sense of adventure. Joseph lives with his wife of 38 years and their two cats in California. He is a loving husband, father, and grandfather.
