The Howard family moved from San Haydren Caifornia to Bayou Bayside Florida due to the loss of a wife and mother. Michael's wife lost her six year long battle with breast cancer a couple of months ago. His boss Mr. McPheeny thought since Michael and his kids were going through such a rough time that it would be in their best interest to move to a new state, start over make a new life for themselves and get some normalcy back in their lives, besides he has a new country club down south that he needs someone to run for him to and so Michael's his best bet. He's hoping that the move proves to be helpful and be the best thing for them all. Michael knows that this move is going to be hard on his kids. He's not to worried about his young son Noah because Noah is a go getter, out going person who works through everything quickly and efficiently. But his daughter D.J on the other hand is a whole other story, she's a loner type who would rather be by herself. She's extremely smart, artistic and talented. She has a love of drawing and painting which she in herited from her mother and that's what keeps her going and connected to her mother even though her mom's no longer with her in person she's with them in spirit.
Born on the 4th of July in Washington, DC, J. Olin Fischer grew up a Mississippi River boy from Missouri. Graduating from SE Missouri University, he taught ESL in Colombia and lived in the Andes 5 years. At 10,000 feet by a mountain lake with 7 waterfalls, tropical rain forest, orchids, word paintings began. Because of several years there studying Asian literature, the flowery style of lyrics soon changed to a more succinct way of expression. Painting with words became the inspiration. After experiencing 40 countries and almost that many professions, many poems born from them, J. Olin resides now in Houston, Tx. This book is "all but a small painting" for you to enjoy.
