When you lose your hair and your hearing and your vision, it’s hard to find any humor in these all too human conditions. These poems were written from experience and, believe me, if you can laugh about aging body parts, you can handle the other problems life hands you. So read, enjoy and laugh!
When you lose your vision, your hearing and your balance, it’s hard to find any humor in the inevitable aging process. These all too human conditions—from wrinkles to worn-out knees, counting calories and colonoscopies, and all the aches and pains in between—form the backbone of Body Language, a hilarious collection of poems that lament the infirmities of age. We can all relate to the frustration of aging body parts, but if you can poke fun at yourself, you can handle whatever life hands you! So read, enjoy, and laugh! And remember, “Though our bodies do not function / As they did when we sought action / With pills and exercise each day / We hope that we will be OK…”

Culver City's Centennial Poetry Collection
Culver City completed its one-year centennial celebration on September 20, 2017, exactly 100 years from the day Harry Culver received his City Charter. Paul Jacobs, former mayor and President of the Centennial Celebration Committee, said that during the year we all searched for words which could describe the pride and enjoyment we have experienced living in and visiting Culver City. The Centennial Poetry Contest organized by Culver City’s Honorary Artist Laureate for Poetry, Dr. Hoult, who is the editor of this book, provided an opportunity to articulate our feelings in poetic form which simple words could not. This collection pays tribute to Culver City through the writing and reflections of its citizens and visitors and conveys a sense of pride and love for the city. Biographies and additional information from the Culver City Historical Society about Culver City makes this a special keepsake.
