A collection of "Shards"— short poem-like prose pieces ruminating on a variety of subjects. From the author's Introduction: "A Shard has more to do with mindset than form, and that mindset is accessed thru the content of the Shard...a river of writing anchored in loosely-connected personal experience and observations...Shards are beholden to nothing nor anyone, myself included. They don't require antecedents or conclusions, and they cross borders without a passport."
