 About the Book 

In Leaving Lakehouse the author tells his own story from the perspective of one who sees the beauty in life without rose colored glasses, and also its limitations-including his own-face to face, without benefit of palliative myth. It is EverymansMoreIn Leaving Lakehouse the author tells his own story from the perspective of one who sees the beauty in life without rose colored glasses, and also its limitations-including his own-face to face, without benefit of palliative myth. It is Everymans story without Everymans assurances, human mortality always an echo in Leaving, but treated as a fact of the human condition not to be denied as part of the fabric of an individual history. Lakehouse becomes the focus for describing and accepting ones place in reality, which is described with a recurring wry irony, and with occasional spurts of indignation, humor, and literary allusion. The author suggests that we might accept our place in nature as do other natural creatures: The birds comings and goings suggest private, almost silent, seemingly uncomplicated lives we are foreign to, an endless epic with no story to tell, time measured by quietly moving wings of a dozen lovely mourning doves passing.
