A PATCH OF LIGHT is a collection of essays that range in topic from the earliest memories growing up in iconic Levittown Pennsylvania to opinions about the present status of health care in the US.
Levittown Pennsylvania is a solidly middle-class/working-class suburb of Philadelphia. The 'sense-of-place' derived from this middle-class neighborhood permeates the essays with a perspective on issues in the wider world. The writings present observations with humor, humility, awe, and sometimes with gentle scolding; all with a hopeful intent.
