Serenades For The Soul: My Life and Yours (Hardcover)
Leave your doubts aside; Plan your passion with your drive; Let your vision be your fuel, The strength within your stride... Serenades for the Soul is a series of inspirational poems spanning 47 years in the life of a former NASA engineer. The author, a Hispanic man born to English and Spanish heritages in the "melting pot" of southern Texas, defied the odds to raise a family in the very different culture of Houston, while dealing with the unfathomable challenges of space program assignments. His cultural heritage, and his determination to succeed, resulted in a man of unique sensitivities and steadfast resolve-qualities he brings to his poetry. The poet's struggles have been more complex than those of the average American, and he brings a sense of that rich tapestry to his writing, as he explores life, love, laughter, nature's wonder, and God. His perceptions of life, nature, people, and faith are thought-provoking, inspiring, and sobering. His reflections on hope, friendships, dreams, family, identity, and our purpose here on earth are eloquent with wonder and reverence. Enter the world of a man who holds nothing back, and whose candor, transparency, and inspiration will illuminate your everyday life.
