About the Book

A few Moments In Life is just that: the capturing for a moment in poetry those things in life that we experience or think about, but can’t quite put into words. The pictures show persons, places and the spectacular nature all around us at which we glance but seldom take the time to really notice. Inspired by the thought that poems combined with music are called songs, Jan calls her poetry with pictures SeeSay. See the picture; Say the words. Enjoy the combined experience. Reading the poems once will not be enough; looking at the pictures once will not be enough. Repeating the experience will become a habit and lead to finding new meaning and enjoyment in a few Moments in Life.

About the Author

Janice Ramsay has always followed her own path. She started teaching in a high school after graduation from college, but within a year decided to go to law school. She graduated as one of four women in her class. She worked in the Watts area of Los Angeles at a community clinic for a few years and then joined a law firm as its first woman lawyer. Years later, she would be the first woman to found her own law firm in her field in Orange County, California. Jan’s creative and playful side was always evident. She likes to have art and bright colors in her home and offices. She likes to be physically active, dance, travel and explore new places. When playing with her children and grandchildren, she will sing songs and make up her own lyrics. In recent years, she allowed herself to follow her heart into unchartered territory. Feelings prompted by finding a new love later in life led her to begin to express herself poetically. She had the idea to combine her poetry with her fascination for the color, beauty and intrigue of photographs and invented a new genre....the combination of the visual and the poetic. She calls it SeeSay.
