From the Designer, Dana Hoescen:

Occasionally in my perusal of the manuscripts we receive in our reading periods there is one that touches me, intrigues me, or just tells me "Hey, I should be published."

Chasing Delight is one of those manuscripts. Reading it I was reminded that each day, year, decade, life is made up of small, individual moments. These moments, these little interactions, have incredible power if we see them for the wonders they are. If we consider how each builds and adds to the sum of our whole, our happiness, our contentment, our lives. James C. Henderson writes of the moments of his life vividly, compassionately, and also with a wry sense of humor that reminds us not to take ourselves or our lives too seriously. 

I highly recommend these poems; they are serious, but not too serious, with precise and pertinent imagery, a few flowers, lots of heart, and most of all sincerely memorable.
