Jeremy Long does not disappoint with his new collection of poetry! He finds a way to combine clever and witty one liners with deep philosophical thoughts and insightful questions. This book touches on every human emotion and the quest to find meaning and understanding in life. As he dances from grief and loss to love and happiness, he paints vivid pictures of New England and Long Island Sound and the everyday beauty it contains. This is a collection of poetry unlike any other and I highly recommend it. – Amazon Review
