Sensing a Life through Stages of Thinking presents random examples of sometimes connected and sometimes disconnected thoughts and perceptions over a lifetime of attempting to sense every moment. Within them exist joy, sorrow, trepidation, confidence, insecurity, disappointment, resolve, failure, doubt, love, shock, excitement, fear, anger, fun, apathy, and other, common to all, emotions of life. The poems in this collection may appeal to readers by describing the reflections they will see in their own lives as they read compelling thoughts about real-life experiences they may have in common with the author. This could be an awakening of sorts for those who want to get closer in touch with the stages of their own lives and how their thinking and emotions evolved over a lifetime. It should also be entertaining and curious as readers investigate the connections between and among the poems that depict how a life and its events have unfolded in time and space.
