Whimsical poetry collection reveals the extraordinary within the ordinary

The world is full of wonder, of magic, of the unknown. It’s a dramatic and exciting place in which to live. But oftentimes we get lost in the mundane, in chores, in schedules—and sadly we become merely accidental tourists. We jaywalk through life, missing out on what is fascinating around us and within us.
