All of life's journeys are filled with many dismal moments. For some of us, the point where pain
and disappointment coexist pushes us to our wits end. Finding a compelling reason to live a
fulfilling life can only start with a radical paradigm shift in our thinking. For this reason, I am
always conscious of telling my story in a genre-blending style and a deeply memoiristic work, yet
as a poignant account of how the choice of perspectives can illuminate the unnerving portrait of
the life we live.
A Poke in My Eye is a challenging and uplifting brainchild of some of the internal dialogues we all
have with ourselves when we are alone, when we are afraid, and when our lives appear to be headed
for a tailspin. Where do we find a place to start over?
Where do we find the willpower to believe in ourselves again? How do we find a reason to live
This is about hope. It is a careful juxtaposition of a range of candid conversations, personal
reflections, poetry, genuine inspirations and simple life-changing ideas from which all of us can
draw practical tools for living a rewarding life regardless of our unique circumstances.
A Poke in My Eye reminds us all to embrace even the most bizarre adversities, confront our fears
head on and find the strength from within to live our best in every moment. Only you and I can make
the moments of our lives count, and the intriguing ideas in this book are my stories.
