One for the Road – By Deborah Kravitz Miller
One for the Road reveals life lessons through the lens of youth and the perspective of adulthood. Poems span idyllic childhood summer days to the ravages of old age. You’ll find laughter, tears, and most of all gratitude for the gift of life and love, the support of family and friends. It is a book best shared with others.
These words and your own can create a better understanding of relationships among people. With that, I hope those who follow in our footsteps lead lives acknowledging the dignity and worth of each individual and live life compassionately.
A poem that calls to our hearts can remind us of a wonderful meal shared together before departing to our next destination. We are forever on a journey; memories coalesce moments our lives touch each other. That is the coming and going, the one for the road, that counts the most. Safe travels.
