“Never having read the volumes of wisdom, eventually, I learned that there had been much to learn.” Such are the words of author Leon A. Walker. In his new publication, Equinox, he uncovers an anthology of his best works along with many new poems and short stories that he believes to be a good way to provide an enjoyable collection.

This book is a compilation of works that was developed over a number of years. Intended to offer visions of many emotions, as well as personal observations and reflections, it also provides a window to a landscape of experiences that have shaped the author personally and which contributed to his worldview and his intense appreciation for life, literature and humanity.

For Walker, people’s lives and the associated experiences and lessons for living are of great value both to themselves and to those they love and care for. In the telling of a story, he simply hopes to share those experiences and lessons. It is also an encouragement for the readers to take a pause, if only for a moment, to consider and appreciate the living journey. Events, whether big or small and which may cause heartbreak, despair, love, and laughter, are all part of that rewarding journey.

“One day, in the blink of an eye or in the vision of a breathtaking sunset, the fortunate among us realize that the story of our lives all that remains. In that moment we understand with satisfaction that which is simply enough,” the author shares.

Quite entertaining and greatly inspiring, Equinox will stir the readers emotions and let them see life in a different light.
