NEW YORK (PRWEB) February 27, 2021
D.L. Rutledge, a veteran and avid hiker, has completed his new book “Trading Stones”: an expressive and emotional book of facing inevitable death, and looking back at the past love in one’s life.
The author writes, “I was lying stretched out on my large deck above my beloved river; my bare feet were resting on a plastic chair. My heart raced and I gasped for air as I woke up, remembering a dream of brown-green turbulent water and thousands of bright bubbles surrounding me as I fought the raging river. I tried to surface, but the river was too strong and the river boil trapped me, preventing me from rising. I fought the strong pull that imprisoned me. And from my right hand, a smooth round stone drifted from my hand and tumbled away and sank.
I straightened up as a hummingbird flitted by, heading for the feeder attached to a six-by-two beam above the sliding door. Smiling, I stood and watched the pair of black-capped chickadees feeding at the holly tree. I watched as a squirrel tried to paw the feeder. The two chickadees squeaked and jabbered surrounded the squirrel. He responded with his raspy retort.”
Published by Page Publishing, D.L. Rutledge’s delightful book take a look at the personal connections one may come across during a lifetime.
It is the author’s story of feeling like an outsider of his own life, one who only looks inward. Viewing and judging actions and behaviors, some with great admiration while other are filled with disappointment and regret. One day closer to dying, and another day thinking about mortality and how it is only a blink away.
Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “Trading Stones” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
