"The author is a natural storyteller, with a keen ability to capture the inherent hilarity of both ordinary and extraordinary days. You won't regret your time on his journey of reflections and growth through a lens that is reflective, comedic, heartfelt and wise."
Are you still searching for your passion? Are you seeking fulfillment in your life but aren't sure where to turn next?
Seed, Grow, Love, Write is part memoir, part self help and part hilarious jaunt through one man's life and will leave every reader laughing, crying and as author John Markowski concludes each short story: "chewing" on something different. An opportunity for the reader to feel inspired and to self-reflect on their own lives.
Grow with Markowski as the "Family Leaf Management Program" lures him into gardening, a love further strengthened by "The Markowski Mulch," a grand event that happened each July. Feel the relief of a clean slate provided by mowing the lawn (known as "The Theory of Vacuum Momentum"), and nod with understanding as he explains how ornamental grasses saved his life.
It's not all gardening by any means. There are stories of his time as a mailman, private investigator, new dad, and petty thief. You meet his grandfather, the amateur taxidermist, his wife (and editor), and blog readers, including "Allison in Ohio."
In Seed, Grow, Love, Write, Markowski shows that a life lived without passion isn't really a life at all, and you'll close the book reinvigorated to find your own passion and not apologize for it. Meanwhile, you'll have had a grand time getting there.
