Enhanced by illustration this collection offers observations on life from many angles including the family pet in the delightful poem To Dogs From a Human. -Jacqueline Jules author of Itzhak Perlmans Broken String. Dans spare poems leave you searching for the rest of the story: context history and future. His poetry provides an eagles view of what seems like a Minnesota winter landscape but on further examination often draws you in with observations of the fullness of living never quite realized or intimacy lost. His cool eye highlights the random and ludicrous aspects of a life which we often take for granted. His eye for details is sharp as in a family of four in military camouflage chewing in unison. Intriguing are his poems about assignments in foreign places where he and other people pass through a landscape of temporary agency. His are poems that once read do not let go of you easily. -Eric Forsbergh author of Imagine Morning Minnesota and Other Poems begins ends and is interspersed with thoughts about the Upper Midwest - its people culture and environment - and filled with trenchant observations of experiences thereafter. In this eclectic collection Nelson builds a vision of life lived strenuously and globally; one deeply etched by that which he has encountered and endured.
