About the Book

What a gift life is! It comes ready to open every morning. Each day is totally unique. Each day can be a new adventure. It can be a source of joy, or of sorrow. It all depends on how we approach it. The secret to joyful living is learning to look at life through the eyes of a small child. As a bona fide baby boomer, I have lived a life filled with many joys and some regrets. Today I choose to live life in joy and with a sense of childlike wonderment. This book is a reflection on how to recapture the sense of wonder and joy we were born with.
This book is a collection of thoughts, ramblings, and experiences about our special gift of life. Baby Boomer Ramblings offers my thoughts, observations and suggestions, on living life in a more positive and happier way. All of this is wrapped around a poem, or more correctly, a poem wrapped around life’s gifts.
Personally, I prefer to live life as a poem. Poetry adds magic to life. It’s the mind’s and heart’s way of expressing one’s inner voice. That is what this book does. Unlike a textbook of life that one reads and studies, poetry is recited by one’s mind and speaks to one’s heart and spirit.
At the minimum, this book offers some food for thought on how to live in the moment. Learn how to live life with a sense of awe and childlike glee. As a baby boomer who has experienced around two-thirds of my life, I’m finally at that stage where I’ve finally got it.
Read this book and discover how to have contentment and laughter. Become a childlike poet of life and be forever young!
