)-- The River Bends in Time ($15, ISBN: 978-1-937536-23-7, LCCN: 2012933922, 110pp, 6X9, April 2012) follows the flow of time and the river as it unwinds in a small town in Pennsylvania along the banks of the Susquehanna. The narrator experiences those quiet moments of joy when ducks come from the sky to skim the water’s edge or in the height of a Nor’easter as he walks through the forest filling with snow, but also the sadness of a neighbor’s dying, or love breaking apart. The river flows, always bending and changing, like discovering the love of a mate that one joins with, becoming partners who run together under flying snow geese, or digging a pond behind a two-hundred-year-old house. Yet, the postmodern world seems lost without a past. A bout with colon cancer brings a renewed sense of the preciousness of each day and how the culture is wrong in its headlong race towards the future. The book ends with moments that resonate with the past in a state of continual affirming discovery.
