Many poets write with the intention of allowing the reader to freely interpret as they see fit. and that is fine. However, my poems are written so that the reader will understand my life a little and, by association, perhaps pause for thoughts about their own life. With that goal in mind, many poems in “Just Thinking” are introduced with a brief overview of the related circumstances.
My life, probably like yours, has had its traumas; successes; failures; celebrations and disappointments. My life, probably like yours, is an ongoing course of learning. This book could well be the perfect catalyst to start some introspective thinking.
The following “Just Thinking” reviews are from amazon.com

“Mellow observations written while in the midst of restless times. Covers a cross section of experiences over multiple stages of live…I appreciate that sense of ‘circle of life’ perspective. Read this at one sitting or choose bits to read while sipping your favorite beverage. Worth the read as well as the price – especially as a portion of the proceeds goes towards a good cause. Thanks, Colin!”
“This is such a sweet collection of beautiful thoughts and sentiments and reflections. The people and stories and memories are so real and tangible, easy to connect with, easy to read. For each poem I have read so far, it’s like he is talking about someone I know… or someone I would want to know 🙂 This books explores so many things, takes you on so many journeys.. the good and the bad and the beauty in between. This book was given as a gift, and it’s one I will treasure!”
