Geographical boundaries separate backyards, but the memories we make in them create a sameness and familiarity that renders the distance between them non-existent. In other words, backyards are set apart by their location, but they are made of the same stuff. Or even better, we are made of the same stuff.This book reveals that our “sameness” is greater than our differences. You won’t be surprised to find scenes from your own backyard weaved within these pages. Nicholson’s stories, poems, and songs of laughter and tears, darkness and light, faith and love, inextricably link us to each other as human beings, and give us a divine reason to hope for a better tomorrow.
