This collection of stories and poems begins with a five-year-old boy standing on a big rock at the end of the driveway, waiting for his father to rumble over the hill in his school bus. He slows down as he approaches the rock and stops. He allows the boys to get on for the short bus ride to the school bus shed. Many years later, far out in the universe, the boy who is now an old man encounters a dazzling goddess Shekinah—the feminine side of Jehovah.
In between, the little boy grows up dreaming of being a major leaguer—an Arkansas Razorback, or at least a Greenwood Bulldog. But alas, fate provided a different destiny. He became a storyteller. He wrote stories about his childhood and his adventures.
The collection begins with the poem “I Am the Water Bucket” and ends with “A Man of a Certain Distinction” which is in memory of William Saroyan’s classic, “The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze.”
