(A retort aimed the gay/clergy sonnet.)The work is a decade-long toil- a critical observation of world events and human animation. The result: a brilliant compilation of intellect and insight that navigates, through five-chapters: world-course correction.This book, of self-discipline and understanding, will become an enjoyed traveling companion throughout ones life.
