About this title


The Bermuda pink sand filters through my toes after I pickup a coral pink sea shell for a keepsake and look to the translucent blue sky After snorkeling with exotic tropical fish I swim to the top of the salty water to gaze at the beautiful serene St Johns Island Walking along the San Monica beach I look out at the Pacific Ocean and I remember when I remember me as a small child in my mother s beloved arms for warmth and protection crossing on a cold winter voyage on Atlantic Ocean heading to the New World I remember the secure feeling I had growing in a small town in north of the state of Connecticut with my five older sisters I remember the struggle I had from teenage years to adulthood and I remember a man I married who helped me to feel like a whole person I sit today on a beach in my own back yard Ocean City Maryland welcoming and enjoying the warm morning sand while feeling and sharing its sense of peace I walk along the Annapolis MD dock thinking about its history it gives and what has been written about it As I look out at its vest Chesapeake Bay horizon from the dock and I listening to its sounds I can still hear the laughter and the giggles of my small sons as their shoes hitting the wood boards Needing moments of escape from reality during the time of my Sons teenage years growing into adulthood I found writing a way to divert and restrain my sanity Today as start each new day I enjoy my memories but I wonder what lies ahead for me I know at this point in my life I want to give a slice of my past experiences with you my reader Through my laughter tears and now my piece of mind I wish to share with you my work in my poetry that I write ENJOY

About the Author:

I was born in a small town in Sicily, on an island off the coast of Italy I came to this country during the cold winter weeks of December on a ship called the Marine Perch. This vessel was a war ship that was converted into a passenger transport after World War II. At that time I was three and a half years old. My family and I arrived in America on December 15, 1947 at the dock in New York City. Through my growing years my parents with me and my sister settled in a small town, Enfield, in the state of Connecticut. In my adult years I moved to work in our family restaurant, Topside Inn, in Galesville, MD. where I met my husband. My husband asked me to marry him three weeks after we met, one week latter I said yes and we were married 6 months later. Settling in Crofton, MD after we were married is where my husband and I raised our three sons.
