Scenes is short stories and poems that capture the ordinary and make it extraordinary. They have the reader pause, for just a moment, and see the happiness, the quiet, the beauty all around.
The pride of a parent, the drumbeat of history, the joy of a child. The stories are short, tightly written, and encapsulate a complete “scene” that anyone can relate to. The poems, likewise are easily readable, and relatable, but bring the reader back to realizing what they’ve already known.
Read them over and over to bring a sense of grounding.

I don’t read very much poetry or short stories so this was a nice change. I’m a very busy mom so it worked out well to read a poem or two when I had a few minutes here or there.
My favorite were the short stories and I wish there were more of them in the book. I found myself caught up in them and didn’t want them to end. I enjoyed Greg’s writing so much that I would love for him to write a novel from some of these short stories. Very beautiful read.
