About the Author
Edward W. Woods was born in Alton, Illinois in 1953. His family moved to California in 1959 and along the way he was exposed to radioactive fallout. He had what is referred to as "acute radiation sickness" and spent a long time in the hospital. He survived and moved to Oregon where he grew up working fields, picking beans, strawberries, and moving irrigation pipes. Drawing was always a passion along with creative writing in college.
Woods took his first poetry class with his youngest son when he was in junior college back in 2002. This entire book has been a spiritual journey for the author, set in motion by his brother's spirit. The author states, "The night of his death, his spirit came to me and said to take all the pain and or happiness from my life and turn it into a poetic form for humanity."
