"Grab a glass of lemonade, turn on the radio and listen to it fade into the background. Sit back and listen as I answer for you some of the same questions Mr. Bowers answered for me." Written as a gift to his curious grandchildren, Ralph Berwanger's collage of stories conveys pivotal events and emotions with a gentle ordinary truth told in touching ways. His journey unfolds like the turn of a kaleidoscope, showing us images of how people, love and faith intersect in influential moments, both brief and everlasting. From the center of his life, Berwanger learns and tells how the lives of those he barely knew and who barely knew him shaped his own life and of unexpected turns that led to enduring friendships and that one essential lifelong love. Reassembled into a meaningful pattern we affectionately call life, Berwanger's resulting book contains invaluable lessons on what it is to be truly human. "Every snapshot of my life contained other faces in the foreground and background. As sure as my picture is there so is theirs."
