by Wendye L. Kolles
Both personal and universal, the poems in Remembering You are about the joys and sorrows of life, finding strength, and the courage to forgive oneself and others. Some of them celebrate long friendships, beloved relatives, and joyful new births. Others explore the sadness of losing family members to age and death and express the complicated relationship between Ms. Kolles and her father. Still others are simply about the wonders of nature and the small gifts of ordinary life. Ultimately, they express the realization that mistakes are only mistakes if nothing is learned from them. Instead, the author prefers to think of ‘mistakes’ as life’s learning experiences and / or life’s challenges.
