Welcome to my zig-zag journey from my native Midwest to the present, It's meant living in a forested yoga ashram and later a desert, serving as staff editor for a future Nobel Prize laureate, covering fourteen states as a field representative for a major newspaper syndicate, being isolated from the rest of the world during a volcanic eruption, hearing my chimney blow away in a nor'easter, being roused by tornadoes while camping, and appearing as a writer and poet in literary journals on five continents.
As a newspaper editor, I've crafted hundreds of thousands of headlines, designed tens of thousands of pages, and cropped and captioned at least twice as many photos, in addition to editing the news and features copy itself.
I delight in Quaker meditation, swimming at Maine beaches, singing baritone in the Revels community chorus, dancing New England contras and traditional Greek lines, hiking in mountains, delving into a symphony or opera, the challenges of contemporary literature and painting, and especially my wife and daughters. I'm not so fond of weeding, raking leaves, shoveling snow, domestic cleaning, dealing with bureaucrats, most medical procedures, or repairing our century-old house. And, yes, we have pet rabbits.

Hodson explores the period of young adulthood to which all of us can draw parallels: the search for someone and the search for meaning. The group at the farm stumbles along, acting and reacting to each other. An enjoyable book by an independent author most likely to be found on a site like Smashwords.
I appreciate the author's offering of a free book. I will be getting another.
