Facing the blank page is the hardest part for any writer. Author, editor, and teacher, David Martin, encourages all of us to remember that “writing of life’s experiences brings order to chaos, beauty to existence, and celebration to the mysterious. Hopefully, words connected to actions will make a difference. How can they not? Don’t we all need a more positive world to share?” This collection of essays and poems is an example to writers of all ages that our writing can “begin as memories from experiences long past”.
