Leonard Neufeldt “The philosopher George Santayana defined life as the fixation of significant points of interest in the flux of experience. In our interactions with our human world, certain moments in our relationships offer more than just a transient happening and a brush stroke of memory; they take on a kind of “life meaning” deeply implicated in our own lives. The poems focus on particular tensions and burdens of a strong interaction with the human community.  Figures in Time, $10.00 (ISBN 978-1-946150-76-9) https://square.online/app/store/users/129102844/sites/541329794836208511/#/store/products/243
