What a Life! a Different Kind of Biography : A Collection of Short Stories, Poems, Musings and Letters
by Nelson Herbert Lafountain




Overview -
Herein are printed stories and poems I have written over the years in my own way of telling my story. Rather than an autobiography I thought this may be a better way of presenting one's life rather than in one mundane book. I began with a book and then I found I like to present my life this way. These are truthful works and not fiction. Some had memory "holes" that needed filling, who said what, or who I gave credit to but nothing that would take away from the story. It's just the way I tell my life. After all, my life has been a series of short stories and poems not one continuous biography or even one long story. I tried to keep them truthful at all times. My poetry is not the deep thinking style but happenings in poetry form. I hope you enjoy it. The Chapter numbers are assigned to the places I lived when the stories happened, not necessarily in the order that they happened. You will find the stories and poems are not numbered. I began writing short stories and poems before I started my book. Then after a few stories, I figured it would be a good way to write a book. So this is it, for good or ill and I am not an author with an extensive vocabulary by any stretch of the imagination, I hope you'll forgive that. They, so I'm told, are quite interesting and easy reading. Take them like vitamins, one or two a day. I hope you will laugh and cry and enjoy The stories, poems, musings and thoughts in this book, are the product of but not limited to, a lifetime of memories, love, life, pain and laughter. It is a labor of love in an effort to sing the praises of those that deserve it the most, and not for the writer. For it was the people that this work was dedicated to that I have to thank for almost all the memories. If it weren't for the people, there would be absolutely no need for writing this book.
