This book was inspired by several changes in my life. Having faced one of the most eye opening challenges, cancer, I needed a vehicle to express those relationships and memories that had been placed in the back of my mind. So with a strong Faith in God and the thoughts that I could do something different in my life I wrote these poems.  The first and most revealing poem was "Just Yesterday". It was the poem that made me realize that I was very afraid of illness but not enough to quit. And the next to last poem "When I Go",  was written to my inspiration, my grandmother. There were more poems in me and I continued each year to search for the spark that caused me to write again thanks to a daily push from my sister Carla. These poems are about people who crossed my life over fifty four years. I hope you find one of your relationships here as well.

 

First Review:

 

Pitter:   I received your book yesterday.  What a showing for your first time out of the box!  I read it last night and really enjoyed your flow. I enjoyed "Just Yesterday", because it gave me insight about how you felt during this time in your life. I also knew that you were always a fighter, so it stood to reason that you would fight cancer.  Again, I am amazed at the strength that you, Willetta, Margot, and Yvonne have shown throughout many issues in your lives.   I also enjoyed "Living in Both Worlds".  What a touching prose to Amparo ! I am sure she is very proud of her mother.
