Baby Shoes Blues PDF Summary

This book, Baby Shoes Blues, is not only a collection of individual and disparate poems; it is a wildly imaginative narrative of a seasoned man’s life. It begins in dreams of innocence and yet portends the experiences of war and the terrible trauma ahead. The stories that follow are unusual and true and present a picture of war not ordinarily seen that will speak quietly but clearly to veterans and non-veterans alike. The narrative continues in the melancholy time of recovery and healing, and if you need or if you have ever needed healing, it will touch your soul. Nowhere is healing more evident than in the ability to laugh at yourself and to see ridiculous claptrap for what it really is. Then when your spiritual eyes are open and you can see how hilarious we all are, you can see your way home. It may be a way filled with great struggle, but there are great blessings for those who will look to find them. The Blues are the blues, but sometimes they feel good.
