“18,533 Days and 18 Inches to Eternity”: an exquisite account that contains a man’s circumstances during the Great Depression, the Second World War, and settling down with loved ones. “18,533 Days and 18 Inches to Eternity” is the creation of published author Louis R. Bukowiec.

Bukowiec shares, “I’m eighty-eight, and I am awestruck that I have written a book (my first ever)!

“My wife Joyce died in 2015. For a time, grief and loneliness were my companions. I soon settled down, doing old-folk things like crossword puzzles, watching TV, etc. Some of my grandkids asked me what it was like being a kid during the Great Depression and World War II. Then one day, my friend Charlie gave me a packet of four one-hundred-page notebook pads. He said, ‘Maybe you can use these.’ Coincidence? So with a pencil in hand, I started writing my story about my favorite subject: me!

“Many memories were rekindled, and suddenly I had a new hobby. A word became a sentence and a sentence a paragraph or a chapter. How far could I go with this? Night after night, the stories flowed through my mind. Quiet, tearful nights became commonplace.

“One night, I awoke with tears in my eyes and a word in my heart”: redemption. That morning, I calculated how many days from my birth, January 2, 1930, to my rebirth, October 4, 1980. It was 18,533 days. Now my story had a working title: ‘18,533 Days to Eternity.’

“As I read my story, I realized I was a normal, hardworking person with a vision, like you. However, unlike most of you, I was an impulsive, addicted, egotistical train wreck. But God had a plan for my life. He wanted to lead me from my egocentric mind to the desire of his love: my heart. It was only eighteen inches.


“Never give up!”
