Cheryl covers interesting subject matter, from Jersey Shore observations like the boardwalk in moonlight, memories of past life, light in dreams, and New York City and other places we’ve all possibly visited, our own perspectives overlapping.
Waiting was not wasted on Cheryl, she took the days, hours, minutes, and seconds to paper. If you want to savor each piece, you can do so in winter, spring, summer, or winter by a roaring fires. Read them aloud, and share them, they are certainly meant for that very purpose.
