Over thirty true stories written by a mother to her young son to impart wisdom that is both personal and universal. Her helmet-less bike riding, returning home at dark at the sound of her mom’s whistle and home cooking favorites will make you wish you were a kid again. The wisdom from her life is rarely offered in such a memorable, entertaining and practical way. Escaping QUICKSAND: Surviving Life's Hazards contains sports parallels, inspiring quotes, pop culture references, graphics and a one sentence survival lesson for each chapter. Together, they comprised a life survival toolkit too powerful to keep solely within the author's family. It is being published it so you can experience the stories and have the same tools at your disposal. The author wishes it inspires you to revisit your own life, challenges, history and family in order to convert past pain into today’s appreciation and pleasure. Do it, and you’ll be clear to focus on the positives of today and create a better future. The author is a living example that our circumstances do not define us. We create the quality of our lives with our thoughts, feelings and actions. This is the lesson she wishes she would have mastered earlier, the lesson she needs to teach her son and a perspective for every person that has experienced pain. Now the world is her oyster and she wants everyone to have pearl-wisdom, escape quicksand and survive life’s hazards. You will find at least one lesson, one story, one reference, one quote, one reminder or one tool that will add to the quality of your life. Happy reading and best wishes.
