Sometimes, life feels like more of a burden than a benefit. However, it is important to maintain wit and perspective in spite of hardships or losses while continuing to laugh
Saint Louis, MO (Vocus) February 13, 2010
Life in America often rushes at a blazing speed. For author Steven Michael Hubele, some of his life experiences were difficult or complicated, while others were routine or simple. What makes him extraordinary is how he usually tried to find the humor in things in order to overcome the burdens of life, coming to terms with jobs, marriage, raising children, friendships, and the loss of a loved one. In Hubele’s new book, Almost Full Circle, he pens down experiences from the trenches of his life in honor of his father and mother.
Provocative and witty, Almost Full Circle chronicles some of the events in Hubele’s life spent with his 50-year relationship with his father and his 25-year experience as a father to his two daughters. His story is full of all the minor disasters and wonderful coincidences that characterize life in the Midwest.
Brought to life are stories about work, playing golf, and learning how to act from his father in life and in sickness. In his trademark celebratory comment, each story ends with the words, “The memories remain.” The hope for reading this book is that it brings some peace as a source of merriment. Yesterday’s failures and triumphs earn tomorrow’s joys.
“Sometimes, life feels like more of a burden than a benefit. However, it is important to maintain wit and perspective in spite of hardships or losses while continuing to laugh,” Hubele says.
