Sometimes we are flooded by our ‘getting on with life’. But occasionally we muse about what our lives have meant and mean to us. This is different from asking the question, "what’s it all about?". In trying to make sense of all this, the Tramping Artisan has taken the experiences of his life and just documented them, verbalising his feelings in this collection of poems.
His experiences are like the ones we all encounter. They aren't particularly awe inspiring; there are no tales of daring do, climbs to unreachable summits, impossible battles fought or amazing wonders seen, no, only a glimpse of what he has experienced in his ordinary life and how this has shaped and held him and makes him who he is.
