Poems and Stories From the Lucky Life of Seymour Lehrer by Seymour Lehrer
This book "Poems and Stories from the Lucky Life of Seymour Lehrer" has taken up five precious years of time. and is why I have no free time. I find poetry to be an interesting and challenging subject. At times I get a spark, work on it off and on for months and years and finally get it right, or sometimes give it. up. These are my best Poems. The balance of the book are stories that I like, several are nonfiction.
Now some would say, "Seymour what in hell is so lucky about your life" Well I'll tell ya, #1 I was lucky that I had people that taught me by example what not to do, kind of weird but better than nothing. I had a few positive examples of what to do. I met my Shirley, that was lucky, her family taught me what it means to be a good husband and father and what it takes to be a business owner. #2 I was lucky that we had two good kids that most of the time were not giving us gut aches', they married good guys that we love, even though they all moved here. #3 That my business that was going broke decided it wasn't. As a matter of fact it learned how to be a success. #4 That by and large we haven't had much in the way of health problems, except for an occasional hiccup. And #5, that we moved and love it in Santa Barbara: a paradise. If that ain't enough good luck, you tell me.
