HAPPINESS IS A WARM FAMILY. . . "Rating on a scale from 1 to 10, my childhood was an 11." So begins this uplifting memoir about three sisters growing up in tiny Maybrook, New York, during the 1950s and 1960s, told by the sister who remembers it well. These real-life stories remind one of Little House on the Prairie, reassuring us that there have been happy childhoods in America. Written in response to a dire medical prognosis that turned out to be wrong, Kathy notes that if she could have anything in the world, it would be to relive that childhood, changing nothing except to get to know her family even better.
Truly the longest life is but a little while - when compared with eternity. It is but a tiny drop in the wide ocean; but as a grain of sand on the boundless shore! Life soon passes it away - and we are gone forever! And when we look forward - how soon shall we be in our graves! A few more days - and we shall come to the end of our little span. Very soon the silver cord will be severed, the golden bowl will be broken - and our dust will return to the ground it came from, and our spirit will return to God who gave it. Then we will go to our eternal home and mourners go about the streets! Perhaps, dear reader, you are drawing to the close of a long life. It may be that your thoughts have long been turned heavenwards. And if so, I know that a word of counsel will be welcome to you. But if, on the other hand, you have been thoughtless hitherto, I will try and make you thoughtful now. Whatever has been your past history, I want to give you in this book a few hints as to how you may turn to the best account, the time that still remains to you. I want to do you some good. I want to make your last days the best and happiest of all your life.
"Jarring A Tiny Bird" is the poetic sequel to Dale L. Baker's award-winning book "More Than I Could Ever Know: How I Survived Caregiving." The poems in this collection chronicle life's pleasures and traumas from a mature woman's point of view. The language is visual, often coquettish and playful, but always powerful, dealing with love, loss, healing, personal mortality and the sheer joy of writing."Jarring a Tiny Bird" opens with a dedication to one strong woman in Ms. Baker's life, her grandmother and ends with a poetic tribute to another, the teacher instrumental in Ms. Baker's development as a writer. The hummingbird theme alluded to in the title, strings together emotional highs and lows of caregiving and widowhood and comes to a surprising yet touching finish in a tongue-in-cheek memorial poem.Ms. Baker's poems have appeared individually in magazines, on-line and in anthologies since 2005. "Jarring a Tiny Bird" is her first published poetry collection.
