“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” Nothing better epitomizes these powerful words by Helen Keller than author G.B. Absher’s newly published book, titled A Mid-Summer’s Daydream. The book’s familiar title brings to mind one of William Shakespeare’s most popular works that includes the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors. Yet, more than simply pastiche, this work is an honest look into the souls of young individuals lusting for pure adventure.

“What we have here is a failure to communicate; a misguided attempt to discover something about myself; something genuine worth smiling for. It may be convoluted. It may be conspicuous. Hell, it might not even make any sense, but that’s for you to decide upon and for me to not care about,” discloses Absher. “In the end, I’m only 23 [years old], and this is just a jumble of writings and typings, every so often in the moment, and I’m proud of it. That year was 2010, and I’d recently graduated.”

This literary work chronicles an exhilarating field trip that takes readers back and forth from one country to another. It is an adventure from Los Angeles to London, Copenhagen to Hamburg and Berlin, Prague to Munich and Zurich, Rome to Montpellier, Barcelona to Paris, Antwerp to Amsterdam. There is no logical order to their travels. Simply spontaneous adventure. Or as they say, “No set plans really. Just a rough outline.”

Exciting, real and raw, A Mid-Summer’s Daydream is a book that unleashes people’s spirit of adventure. Absher helps readers realize that during exhilarating experiences such as traveling, oftentimes it is not what happens to them, but what happens in them that is important. Travel is transformational.
