Tito was really enjoying this special daythe last day of 1999, the last day of the twentieth century. He had a great feeling about this evenings celebrations and about the new century that was only hours away. Little did he know that the greatest surprise of the evening was to have nothing to do with the special dishes that he and his wife, Pat, were planning to serve, the entertainment they were to offer during the course of this auspicious night, or the gifts that they had so carefully selected for each of their guests.

Invisible Threads Book Description :

This collection of poetry came to me as I walked through a dark time in my life. It began with words pulling me out of bed late one night insisting I write them down so they wouldn’t be lost. They continued to appear while illness, heartache, and fear split me open and taught me to let love in again. The poems on these pages are my dive into the darkness and light that encompass my being and gratitude for the gifts of nature and beautiful souls who have held out a lifeline for me. I’ve come to understand the goodness that is ours to live no matter who we are or what we hold. My hope is that we all feel it stirring within to lead us through difficult times and help us find our way back home....
