Celebrate Life Review In Brattleboro Reformer

" Some of the poems and stories make you giggle, others
make you feel regret, but they all make you think, and they have a common thread of prodding the reader to take the time to notice the simple things — told with subtle humor and vivid imagery."  Cicely Eastman -Editor Reformer

“Celebrate Life: Viva La Vida -Stories, poems, and songs that celebrate life, love, travel, relationships, and his neighbors told by the renowned story teller Namaya who is described as a "A Vermont Treasure." by Vermont Life Publisher David Haskins
As a world traveler he gathers his poems and stories from his journeys through life -- from the majestic elegy of "Orlando" to the ordinary mysteries "What happened to the other sock?" to the hilarious misadventures in home repair.

As the poet Wendy Baez Brown said, “The joy flowing through these poems and stories is contagious. As you read this book, you will be immersed in the belief that our lives are precious and glorious, to be savored and shared. Namaya’s quirky sense of humor shines through these pages as well as a profound curiosity about human beings and an appreciation of each moment he gets to have with us..”

Seven Days Magazine - "Namaya is a modern day Thoreau in a world gone mad."

Vermont Standard "Down home storytelling!”

A wonderful endorsement!

What a lovely compliment: "Namaya is a modern day Thoreau in a world gone mad."

I wonder if Namaya would be so kind as to provide link, as I would love to read the entire article where that quotation originally appeared.
