Moments in Life by Patrick Gately

Few poets capture the moment with quite the wisdom, perception and acuity of Patrick Gately.

Observations drawn from everyday life experiences, that may be momentary or fleeting, cast light on the mundane world and all that is easily overlooked. From domestic chores, community and workplace relations to conflicts on the world stage, the ups and the downs, the daily comings and goings are put under the microscope and faithfully recorded in the author’s inimitable, laid back, everyman’s style.

Even as life goes on, as invariably it must, he never loses sight of the humorous side to any given situation, as he reflects upon all that has come to pass, the conclusions to be drawn and the lessons to be learned.

Moments in Life takes the reader on a journey that, at its conclusion, will make you feel glad that you took the time to stop and stare.

Part of the Moments series by Patrick Gately. See also, Moments in Time by the same author, also available to buy online from this website.
