This book is a subjective account of stories my mother told me. It is not written for historical accuracy. Rather, it is a celebration of my heritage. The book is a sharing of stories that Mom told me of her life from her arrival in Grand Falls, Newfoundland, Canada. Mom was born in rural Newfoundland in the early 1900s. During the first fourteen years of her life, she and her family lived a very isolated lifestyle. Things changed one day when she got on a sled. The journey from dog sled, to ship, to train was an introduction to a change of lifestyle. There would be no going back to a winter house. If you are interested in what her life was like prior to this, please read the previous book entitled: Moms Stories. As you read, I hope you will visualize the life of a single woman in-service, grasp her desire for independence, travel with her in your mind back to an isolated community and experience her reaction to the physical environment of that time and how it impacted her world view. I compiled these memories so that future generations would know something of the heritage and the struggle that she faced as life in town changed her. Allow me to reiterate that I do not promise a factual account of any of the events. I cling to the personal accounts of our Mom as she told them to me.

These poems come from a clear personal awareness of the darkness in us all. The poetry arises from his close connection with the shadows that we all have, but few admit to. Uncovering the spirits and goblins in all of our closets we find it possible to touch the darkness with our awakening hands and to take it back with us into the realms of our own existence and drag it back kicking and screaming to our habitational realm. Robert proclaims himself a real Bard of wonder in a marvelous world of imagination.
