About the books:
Deeper Than Your Deepest Sleep: Thoughts on Love with Joseph Snorton – Love. Everyone has their take on the most wonderful yet mystifying feeling and emotion around. When the author is able to have a conversation with his hard to find family member, the conversation is an engaging, insightful, humorous, sincere, painful, yet hopeful look at love. The author’s retelling of his relative’s take on love through the lenses of relationships with family members, friends, loved ones, and community is an intriguing yet easy to follow poetic journey; the journey changes when the relative interviews the author and challenges him to look at love through similar and divergent lenses, providing a whirlwind tour in capturing the wide range of experiences of loves past, present, and future, as opening up regarding matters of the heart can be one of the more vulnerable yet strongest conversations one can ever have.

nothing Minor: a 2019 summer journey covering minor league baseball – Before making Major League Baseball, the minor leagues is a key starting point. Join the author as he provides a snapshot of his coverage of the minor league teams in Gwinnett (AAA affiliate of the Atlanta Braves), Chattanooga (AA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds), Greenville (A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox), Greensboro (A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates), Birmingham (AA affiliate of the Chicago White Sox), and Mississippi (AA affiliate of the Atlanta Braves).
Enjoy the experience from the press box, camera pits, and dugouts learning more about the players (as a few did get promoted to the big leagues during the season), teams, and game-play. Add to it the experience of the Negro Leagues Museum (in Birmingham, AL) along with learning more from a hidden part of the game, the umpires, as you take in 7 games in 8 weeks across the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and “the ‘Sip” with the author.
And that is nothing Minor..

9 Stories of Faith – This first volume is a collection of interviews from people from multiple faiths and religious backgrounds (in this edition, Christianity, Hindu, and Islam). With key focus areas on what is their biggest challenge and how do they navigate through it, is provides the ultimate purpose of hope and affirmation in the following manners: 1. The universal theme of EVERYONE has to deal with some sort of struggle or challenge. 2. How one’s faith and spirituality provides the grounding in which they are able to navigate through life’s challenges. 3. The consistent utilization of conventional and unconventional means to enjoy the best quality of life possible. 4. The understanding that even if people have some philosophical differences with different components of religion (their own or otherwise), there are universal themes which cannot be denied.
