The Colors of My Life

Short Stories and Poems

by J.L. LeGerrette

Book Image Not Available
Overview

This book is a collection of short stories recalling confounding or crazy situations I got myself into. Thinking back, I shake my head and wonder how I made it past 5 years old...in one piece. Included are some poems that I wrote for my beautiful children who I described to someone as..."Each having the power to hold my heart in the palm of their hand." Please enjoy this short collection!

Description

These stories and poems are reflections of the zany, humorous, and true situations that I either fell into or created because of my very conversational way that I categorized information in my mind. The main consistency in my childhood was the familiar voice in my head which helped me reason and maneuver through the complexities of life. This created some funny life lessons along the way that will make you laugh, or sometimes bring a tear to your eye as you navigate the memories in my heart, and possibly find a familiar note of reasoning. When I had children of my own, I wrote poems to share with them my innermost appreciation of their beautiful lives and the love that burned in my soul. This collection brings me full circle to embrace the odd little girl that I was, which helped create the mother and grandmother that I have become.

About the author

During my childhood I had no idea that everyone did not have the same unique life experiences that I did; moving several times, living with different relatives and having parents who were musicians. As an adult, I reflected back on the zany way I interpreted life, and the way that I categorized things oddly in my head. This made for hilarious and awkward moments. Over the years, the stories have accumulated, and have recently been knocking on the door of my heart, wanting to meet the world. Now that I am a grandmother, it is time to chase my dreams of putting the thoughts that are in my head, into printed form for others to enjoy.
