The author and I worked together for several years and I am pleased to be able to say that Wayne and his wife are friends of KEMS and mine.

I went to the launch of this book today and bought several copies for myself, KEMS and as gifts for some people who worked with Wayne and myself. Wayne was good enough to write a personal dedication to each of them in their copy for me, including this one which is a copy for my better half, KEMS.

Author's description from

"Most of my poetry started out written by pen or pencil on whatever paper was available at the time; such as paper napkins (accompanying a coffee and the compulsory cookie or cake), or the inside of a emptied breakfast cereal box. The poems were collected in a scrapbook, currently residing in the bottom drawer of my filing cabinet. Many were then typed on a small portable typewriter in its tan coloured case. The scrapbook and typewriter accompanied me by car out of British Columbia, the furthest west province of Canada; down the western coast of the United States through Washington, Oregon and California. This treasured pair then accompanied me as hand luggage across the Pacific Ocean as I migrated to New Zealand and then Australia. The typewriter was eventually sold at a garage sale leading up to our most recent move in 2002. At some point my much travelled friend was replaced by a computer (Commodore 64, I believe). After many computer upgrades, I now have all my prose poetry collection saved on my desktop and backed up on a USB stick. As I have exposed my emotions and interests to you in this collection of poetry, I trust you have been touched by at least one of them.

I had given this book to KEMS many years ago, but it was only today realised I hadn't posted release notes, nor had Kathie said she had caught it. Good thing we were looking for a suitable reading for our wedding.

Wayne is going to read "Would I Care So?" as part of our wedding ceremony in two weeks' time. It seems to refer to us, just as much as it did to Wayne & Sue.
