About the Book

My mother told me, on more than one occasion, that I was almost born in an elevator. I do not doubt that statement one iota for my life has been nothing but a series of ups and downs ever since. I really can’t sit still. Even my lovely bride of almost four decades hollers at me because I twitch, sometimes violently, when I sleep. Hence the title of this latest work: Owen in Motion. Owen in Motion is Doug’s fifth volume of poetry and writings. In this book the reader will be enriched, inspired, encouraged and entertained. At times, the reader will be treated to a poem or tale of spiritual content, only to be followed by a simple poem with a twist of both tongue and mind. Throughout the book are poems and writings about love and loss, marriage and family life, spiritual journeys and living large, which will cause the reader to pause and reflect on both the simple and deep things in life. As was true for his first four books, once you pick it up you will have trouble putting it down.
