Comic, heartfelt, and mysterious, those tales attraction the reader with stable humor, affection for his or her typical settings, and the mild, chronic looking for a long-lasting position within the day-by-day global of universal folk.


Some stories forged moonlight over the solitary in us all who wander at nightfall. Others hang-out us with loss and evoke a undeniable feel of autumn, more likely to press sighs from an discomfort in our breath. nonetheless others fill us with the delight in a real hero.


Within, the reader unearths younger love, elderly angst, bumbling tourists, the fogged reminiscence, moon watchers, puppy rescuers, misplaced and very-lost travelers, and lengthy, candy farewells.


The funny between those engender wistful smiles, occasional smirks, and outright chuckles punctuated by means of a shaking of the cynical head.


In the culture of Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and Henry David Thoreau's Walden, the narratives flip their gaze to our habit, major us to discover ourselves outdoor instead of looking out inside. The phrases someday reduce sharply our venal selves, different occasions lead us to arrive a give up our hearts.


These tales, unified through Jollymore's “wolf poems,” invite readers to hitch in a cheerful, pointed, and delicate cosmic dance, hand in paw with the wolves doing the “chill-rhumba, Borealis.”
