"A Little Piece of Mind" is a book of poetry written from a personal point-of-view that the environment in which people live is directly connected to nature. As nature loses "ground" in the world, Man also loses advantage as a leader over the environment. We should all respect and appreciate this connection and become aware that when the natural environment is able to thrive in a healthy process, so also the lives of mankind will be enhanced. Living as a student, parent, and active member of society, it has been noticed how life is affected by the abuse of the Planet and as a result, how mankind suffers through the "aftershocks" of this abuse. This poetry is written to bring out an awareness to the beauty within nature around us and to also open a consciousness to the beauty of living life in a manner that will keep the planet and personal lives in a healthy association where both will survive for the future generations.
