About the Book

Bob.... You have a true gift and it’s obvious that the Holy Spirit is guiding you. Your thoughts are intriguing and calling me forward... The depth of your faith and spirit just reached out and grabbed me! Mrs. Judy Wolfe mother of 2, grandmother of 4, school board member, director of religious education.

...OH MY! Thank you! If only everyone could see HIM that way!
.....I loved it all, especially how your spirit captures the essence of the moment by moment, a total immersion of your whole self in that time and place. You are a gifted young man! Frank O’Neil OFS

Beautiful! What great word pictures you have drawn for me. I can smell the blossoms and see the trout....You are a talented poet!

Powerful metaphor of concrete and asphalt for the aridity in a relationship.

Love your poem... how sacred it is to watch the children at Mass. Always brings a smile to my face. Love the visual of holding HIS hand. A child like trust indeed.

You have such a gift of observation! After reading this I wonder if it was Francis who preached to the birds or the other way around.

What a wonderful character sketch! .... I feel the sacred in the ordinary moment. Thanks for sharing your gift!

About the Author

He grew up on a farm in western Pennsylvania, as the eldest of 7. His proclivity to the outdoors was natural and his appreciation for God’s glory second nature. As a father of 3 and grand father of 4, life’s lessons were embraced. Giving witness to the incarnation in daily life was a logical outcome. His formation as a secular Franciscan gave clarity and definition while the encouragement of his sponsor , Frank O’Neil OFS, was pivotal.

His ability to combine photography and prose has the effect of painting a more robust and deeper picture of life. A picture that draws you to the core of the moment, you are there! Hopefully moving forward to see with only your new eyes.
