About the Book

Has it ever happened to you that you drove for half an hour—from home to work or between any other two points—and then did not remember much of what you saw? Large parts of our daily lives are like that. Many of us go through most of our lives like this. But many others see, perceive, understand, and share life’s joys or sorrows with others in empathy. Life can be tough and very serious—but it can also be romantic and full of love, so funny and full of joy!

The following stories are offered to you, the reader, to let you pause and perceive, to touch your human sensitivity and understanding—and also to bring you joy, to simply entertain you.

About the Author

For Helmut Schwab, value of life came from the warmth of human bonds—in the family, among friends, and in chance encounters. This experience of the world with a human touch—in empathy, joy, or humor; but also in sympathy, sorrow, and suffering—provided the inspiration for his short stories.
