These poems are about the little things in life, the snippets that make up millions of moments in time. From eating ice cream cones and reading under the covers in summer camp to dealing with life's clutter. But they are also about the ''big'' issues of life- aging, separation, devasting illness and death. However, even with these inelegant moments, there is often humor, because we do not control many events that cross our paths in the course of a life. If we can laugh along the way, maybe we can ease the pain.
