It's Not Easy Being Ordinary, a new book by Vandella Poe, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

"I close my eyes and envision the garden. It is a spring morning, and the air is crisp with the first morning's frost. I see myself standing in the garden amongst the freshly planted seeds that were started a week ago. They have already begun to extend above and beyond Mother Nature's dark, moist blanket, earnestly reaching toward the clear blue sky, the warmth of the sun. I had forgotten this photograph was not lost but just a forgotten memory lodged in the depths of my heart, just waiting to be remembered."

When Vandella Poe left an abusive relationship and retired, she had a second chance to do what she really wanted to accomplish in life, to leave a mark, something to say, "This was who I was, what I loved doing."

If you have a second chance to do something you love, do it. Life is too short not to. This is who she was and what she enjoyed doing and was passionate about: being an artist.
