Dennis Stubblefield was born in Eatonville, Washington. Dennis has had a lot of different jobs in his life, but he could never do the one thing he wanted to do until he retired: and that was to write. He says that when you are young and starting out, you marry and start your family, and you work at anything it takes to feed and care for your family, but then retirement allows you to follow your dream. Stubblefield’s dream was always to write poetry—small fragments of one’s life and a chance to share with others one’s innermost feelings. Stubblefield hopes that as you read this book, you keep in mind that although it took most of his life to get it to you, it was a great ride for him to finally get to share it with you.
