The ups and downs of surviving; ah- who doesn't tangle with this daily? Gem and Chaff is a samba of these moves. There is light and shadow play at play in this collection of poems, verses, haikus, and vignettes. Lightning moments of time touch the personal, esoteric, and mundanity. Yet, going beyond the ordinary is the book's exhortation. A medley of melodies challenge your body, mind, and spirit. Imagine apicnic where teddy bears drink pink champagne on a mountan high? Or how about zigzagging to organ crescendoes? Feel the flair and the flow. Also, the mystery of pirates of Whiskey Island and Dead Man's bay. Smart against sharp winds en route home after a Thousand Island's cruise on Lake Ontario. Detect: Secrets in Lake Ontario Silver ripples shimmer at noon. Brilliant sunshine heralds in balmy breezes as Lake Ontario keeps secrets. Inhale: Creamy clouds puff out glowing candle tears and laughing cheeks. Remember: "In the end there is no force comparable to nature. Abstraction alone does not lead to a real solution; it must be born of experience, in humility before nature and in limitless diversity" (Feiyninger). Marvel at Van Gogh's imagined reply to this author's letter. Savour the more
