What do you expect to find here? How am I supposed to sum up Life into 200 words? I can't, and I won't. Answers to Life are within these pages. Bumpy roads and stormy weather, with a pinch of sunshine and laughter. Add a dash of longing, and a good strong bitter twist of Governmental corruption. Include the Four Noble Truths, The Four Elements, and clues on how to understand Heaven. Okay, so I CAN sum it up in 200 words. I'm a writer, that's my job what I do. What do YOU do? What are YOU here for? Maybe you'll find out inside of these pages. Welcome to My World.

Bad Haircut Kale Chips. Post-ER Roast Chicken. New Baby Risotto. Frantic Dinner-Party Calming Soup. These are some of the dishes that food writer Leah Eskin has turned out during her years of raising two children, enduring one dog, and tending her marriage. She's also nurtured her ten-year-old food column, "Home on the Range," providing a recipe and accompanying vignette in the Chicago Tribune every week. Slices of Life transforms those columns into a memoir that readers can savor in small or large bites. It's a compilation of more than 200 recipes, with a generous helping of the life stories that happened along the way: moving-day potatoes, summer-vacation apricot pie, dead-microwave ratatouille, sullen-child oatmeal squares. Whether preparing recipes for disaster or delight, Leah Eskin has made it all delicious!

My Creative Mind came to me while driving around Wausau one day and wondering where it all came from, and where will it go, like great mysteries in life I shall never know. At that point I got off the road before I had an accident. I pulled in the parking lot of Pick N Save on Bridge St. and started writing. By that time I always had pen and paper with me. My memory isn’t that good. This poem also won an Editor’s Choice Award from Poetry.Com. Aunt Laura’s Wine Cellar also won Editor’s Choice from Poetry.com. I started writing this one about an upcoming family reunion and it just sort of became Aunt Laura’s. There really was an Aunt Laura and yes she really did have a wine cellar. This is one of those things that became a part of our family’s history. I shared it at the reunion and it brought back a lot of great memories. It also seems I wasn’t the only one to find an excuse to go downstairs to “get something” for Aunt Laura. Of course she knew what we were up to but we think she was flattered by the attention too. Then there was cousin Karen who said “hey wait a minute guys, I was never in Aunt Laura’s wine cellar, where was it?” Well sorry Karen. It seems you were the only one never in it. Geeze that’s really too bad. Aunt Laura has been passed on for some time now but oh what memories she left us with. Thank you Aunt Laura. I was getting to know more about Ginger Hartman and realized how much she had endured in life and yet survived. My first poem was basically a response to her poems and life and to prove that “hey. I can write one too.” Well I did and haven’t stopped. Perhaps I never will. The first poem was entitled How the Hell Did You Do It? It’s a bit of an unusual name but the words bare out an explanation. I wrote a few more about her, about her and me, about myself and then about many other people, places and things. Without her poems I never would have tried to write even one. I owe my creative endeavors to Ginger and shall be forever grateful for her inspiration, support and encouragement. You never know what life will send your way but when it does just grab on with both hands and let life happen.

ABOUT THIS BOOK and (all seriousness aside) the reason for it… Having already published three novels, the author felt it was the moment to boldly enter a short story competition. The problem was that he became obsessed with the idea that he might have his work rejected. Not considering the first tale to be acceptable enough, he then wrote another, and another… All fell far short of his expectations so he just kept on painfully penning with artful aid of Katie Northover. After passing the half century literary-wise (there are 57 stories in this book) he decided that he would employ extreme deviousness in his anecdotage and instead of a mile high pile of rejection slips covering his desk he would then risk receiving only one. He has apparently based this on the fact that some expert stated that the present time level of readers concentration span is minimal. He is hoping that as this book will fall into the requirements of that category his readers attention will somehow remain totally enthralled within its covers.

'Slices of Life' is a collection of short stories or vignettes that provide an immersive and entertaining experience of diverse scenarios of life in motion. They are slivers of existence with the ingredients of plot and characters, sprinkled with human emotion, pervaded by the aroma of human dilemmas and served in the platter of lucid language. Sometimes searing with agony and often pervaded with beauty and yearning in the midst of travails in a contemporary or futuristic reality, they explore relationships and the human struggle to find meaning amidst chaos. They describe the consequences of our choices and characters who are at the threshold of a discovery or have reached the zenith of tolerance. The universal themes and enduring images of commonplace individuals in the swirl of life are embedded in a mixed bag of genres ranging from bathos and futuristic Sci-Fi to grim Realistic fiction and a suspenseful Whodunit.

The poems in this collection are offered along two related lines. In the first part of the book the poems and etchings coalesce to form what the author calls a family portrait of grace and faith, representing the fruit of a process of biblical study and reflection, which will be of interest to both the lay person and pastor in his or her preparations for teaching and preaching. In the second section of the book the author provides a variety of poems disclosing the dynamics of life in its multiplicity of patterns and expressions. Together the two sections seek to express the grace of God in the commonalities of life.

Slices of Life is unputdownable. It grabs interest from the get-go with stories that focus on people’s assimilation into societies that treat them differently because of their distinctly vibrant, strange cultural mores and norms. Pushing the boundaries of the possible is the common thread that runs through this collection of short stories. From India to the United States, Africa to the Caribbean, readers are taken on journeys that weave history with contemporary times, horror and fantasy with reality, unbelievable depravity with bursts of extraordinary courage and determination. As characters exhibit the range of human emotions in facing life’s challenges, they peel off the layers of reality behind social facades. In-depth, riveting, and soul-searching, Slices of Life is about love and betrayal, scandals and shocking revelations, ecstasy and the extra sensory, with each story embodying characters who search for understanding, relevance, justice, and closure. Part of the proceeds of this book will support the work of the Caribbean Voice’s suicide and abuse prevention work.

Katie Waters lost her mother at a very young age, and her father left soon after, abandoning her to the orphanage. Despite these early hardships, she grew to be an artist, inspired by the people and natural world around her. Slices of Life is just that: slices of Katies life, little snippets that meant something and linger on in memory. She remembers finding a family in the orphanage: A year passed; l was lined up with all the others, white dress, socks, and shoes, and stood there, patiently waiting. They paced and looked along the line to choose which one. l raised my arms to be picked up. l was chosen, then taken home to meet my new brothers and family. A whole new life had begun. Katie is grateful for all the lessons that have crossed her path in life so far, teaching her forgiveness, strength, courage, and understanding. She has found joy in life as a lonely artist, able to observe and enlighten the people around her. Hers is a collection of awakening as she beckons readers to relax, listen, and perhaps find unexpected wisdom of their own.

The essays in this book, written by poets, novelists, mountain-climbers and academics from all over the world, evoke the representation of mountains in the English-speaking world as artists, writers, philosophers or mountain-climbers have represented them from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries. From the Alps to the Pyrenees, from Mount Fuji to Mount Shasta, from the Himalayas to the Scottish Highlands, from Ikere in Nigeria to Devil's Tower in the United States, from Uluru in Australia to the most northern mountain of the Arctic, the shapes of the world speak the same language and tell the world its own story. This interdisciplinary book, weaving together mountaineering, literature, philosophy, painting, cinema, ecology, history, palaeontology, geography, geopolitics, toponymy, law, religion and myth, invites people to an innovative reading of mountains: it reveals the close relationship existing between the shapes of the world and all forms of writing and, at the same time, it shows how the representations of the imagination may be instrumental in protecting the natural world. The story told by the landscape inscribes a broken line in the shapes of the world, tearing the landscape like a fragile page whenever historical and political events (wars, mining or deforestation) leave scars in the landscape; but writers' and artists' representations of mountains constitute a path to awareness as they are not only a painting of beauty, but an image of our link to nature and a warning as well. For centuries the image of the mountain has conveyed a symbolism telling the story of human thought, and this book shows to what extent literature and art play an essential part in our awareness of nature.

It is impossible to capture the essence of a man in a simple recount of his life. Likewise, it would be equally impossible to reveal his trials, tribulations, and accomplishments exclusively through poetry. But together it may be possible to capture enough of a mans soul to keep him alive in the hearts of his audience for all of time. In his collection Slices of Life: A Selection of Short Stories and Poems, author Michael Patrick Mullaley seeks to capture the full dimensionality of his existence. Through a conglomeration of memoir, poetry, and prose, Mullaley challenges the limitations of written expression and weaves a totality of insight into not only his own being, but also some deeper aspects of the human condition as a whole, exploring both weighty questions and everyday pains and pleasures. The Cedar Chair explores a moving relationship between an inmate and a little girl, and many of the stories feature a core struggle, such as that of the older runner in All the Way. Some of his poems appeal to a cerebral nature, such The Contender, while others appeal to the senses, as in Feelings. A thought-provoking collection of prose and poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, Slices of Life captures the depths of Mullaleys soul and considers questions of human nature.
