About the Book

This is a collection of poems, prose, and other creative pieces. Roy has always loved words. He has always been fascinated with the English language and how each word can be utilized in various ways depending on its context. Being somewhat of a loner at times, he found solace in turning to the pen and putting his thoughts and feelings on paper. Here is a small slice of some of his collected “slices of life’s excursions”. His hope is that these slices will create conversations, thus leading to understanding and, thereby, an appreciation of the other persons point of view.
