It is often quoted that within each human being there is a story waiting to be told. The Traveling Heart is a brief story in verse of one man's journeys. It is a reflection of a nomadic life, a reflection of the author's experiences of other cultures and traditions, and many personal challenges. As you will see as you read, the smallest of things have had an impact, as have some of the more notable incidents in recent times. The author takes you on his roller coaster ride - moments of complete despair and moments of sheer joy.
