about On Growing Old

These delicate poems string together memories of childhood and youth, of observations and mistakes. On Growing Old reflects like a kaleidoscope, displaying the subtle and not so subtle nuances of everyday living all while exposing the depth that memory takes to shape a person. This chapbook is an understanding and a revelation, with an essential eye on the future.
