It's good to be alive. Barnes' writing makes us feel that. Her essays—part poetry, part prose, all powerful—capture the potential, the pleasure, the goodness of a moment, even in the face of pain or death. Each short piece takes only a moment to read but show how life can be fully lived.
Judith Barnes, Ph.D., is an educator, entrepreneur, speaker and writer who likes doing new things, being creative and working with interesting people. When not on a plane, she lives in Albany, New York, with her cigar-loving cat.
