My new book THE LISTENING TREE is now available at lulu.com and on amazon. Since I had so many projects this past year with different writing opportunities, this book was a break from the norm for me. It’s a short poetry form book that delves into growing pains and the hardships we face in our youthful years. My son, Tony, came up with the title, and the beautiful canvas art was done by my daughter, Lana. They consulted me on each page and helped me gear it toward a middle school through high school aged audience to let them know they are not alone. Here’s the description:
There are times when everyone feels the world is against them. There are times when everyone achieves a milestone they want to share. In either of these cases and more, all we want in those moments is for someone to hear our thoughts and listen. The Listening Tree is our escape place. It is a place where judgement is void, and a place for peace of mind. Within these pages are thoughts many of us have throughout our youthful years. It is intended for all people to let them know they are not alone.
