Set Your Sights On Something Savory And Sure To Scintillate Your Senses ... This book is a smorgasbord of thought-provoking and inspirational tidbits inviting the reader to deeply focus on the good and to reflect it back through daily deeds. It looks at life as a lyrical composition played out in our daily lives through our thoughts, poetry, songs and actions. It is a compilation of who we are, living in a fast-paced world in which our thoughts are not often absorbed, shown or appreciated. This book gives a brief view of what seemingly goes unnoticed, but is in the background of every great human endeavor. It takes you simply to the point with rhythmic, poetic and philosophical narratives. The descriptive view in words is not instructional, but rather inspirational and motivational. No matter the background or culture of the reader, all who read it will find something to hold on to. From a source of wisdom that spans more than a century, the author garners knowledge from his 103 year old maternal grandmother and his mother who is 86. This book infuses physical and mental joy, dilemma and discovery into bite-sized pieces of knowledge, into poetic and lyrical cadences. It unmistakably offers the reader a bird's eye view of philosophical perspectives on current and past events. It succinctly introduces and describes subjects without exaggerating them, and is careful to not exhaust the reader. The book is written in a manner that allows a reader to begin reading anywhere in the text. The reader will be able to randomly read the book without starting at the beginning and continuing through the end. There is no need to bookmark where the reader finishes because each article is independent of the other. The non-sequential approach to the book is reminiscent of the human thought process; even when the reading of it is interrupted it finds meaning in our thoughts. The book delves into the psychology of who we are, what we think of and how we react to the world around us. I
