JWG Grand Hodgepodge

Authored by John Wm Garand
Edition: 1

It was a difficult time dealing with four aging parents in the Spring of 2011. While the author's scribblings in his book "Done and Not Begun" deal explicitly with these events, the 118 poems in "Grand Hodgepodge" appear to skirt the daily tribulations of illness, infirmity, dotage and an unexpected death in the family.

Topics ranging from Walt Disney to opera, to PBS and NPR, kangaroos to Hollywood populate these pages. The burdens of coping with daily life were only hinted at and it is admirable that such optimism existed during those trying days.

As always, John Garand's carefully structured poems are easy to read, easy to understand, and ultimately memorable for their charming entertainment and delightful insight.
