Walking Still includes treasured memories and heartaches of everyday people. It examines the relationships between men and women, falling in and out of love, the environment and nature, life’s challenges such as infidelity and domestic violence, family values, and many other provocative themes. Walking Still takes you beyond photographs, conversations, and dreams as it delves into the depths of life’s experiences to capture the essence of the unforgettable memories that touch our souls.

The author takes us on a therapeutic journey by sharing comic moments, love stories, and tragedies through narratives of friends and family. She unveils the beauty of life, along with its mishaps and collisions.

Whether you feel yourself “venting” along with the author in “Cleansing,” experiencing the warmth of “Two Grand Divas,” exploring the love of “Husband,” or just pondering, “... How many tuna cans can you open before enough is enough?” In Walking Still, you will find enjoyment in the rich imagery and emotion of these poems.

As you read some of these powerful, emotive poems again and again, you will find yourself laughing and crying with the author. Their tenderness and honesty will surely find a place in your heart.
