Salt and Paper: 65 Candles
A daily reflection that is immediate and an accumulation of life experience in poetry and prose fragments placing a heartfelt yet realistic light on difficult subjects as the author speaks of aging: a friend’s slow demise with Alzheimer’s; the life-long effect of a brother’s mental illness; the present, lived aging process; the interlacing of four generations—and the creative writing life that responds with compassion, humor, and art.
With deep emotions including soaring joy, the author shows us how to be at the pulse of life. Present time becomes the goal of living well. Salt and Paper is an alternative way to write a memoir using journal entries and fragments and poetic language.
