Each tightly written non-fiction vignette is its own human interest story. Each one immediately grabs and holds the reader’s attention. These essays, however, are more than merely entertaining. They offer insight into people and life. These are not stories “about nothing.” They are stories about something, each story offering up a lesson. Sometimes the lesson is obvious, sometimes not. Sometimes, when finishing a piece, I found myself just sitting and contemplating what I had read. Among the lessons to be learned is that when bad happens, it may not be all bad. Another is the value of family and of friendship. Also, to seize the moment and to appreciate what you have when you have it.
These lessons and these essays are for everybody. They are laden with meaning but written in an easy prose. Elynne Chaplik-Aleskow has written My Gift of Now, but her stories are timeless.
We heard Elynne mention in a recent interview that the book will soon be available in an audio version - let us be the first in line!
