In this debut of a series of books filled with Robert A. Cozzi's poetry and prose, you will feel something emotional and grasping as you read through his thoughts... A first visit to any seaside village... a beach romance long lost... remembering family holidays at the shore... how your family experienced their holiday or simply reminiscing a beautiful day sitting with your toes in the sand... or... rocking in a chair on a screen porch during a summer rain storm... "Rob's writing is a journey that he takes his reader on with him... I don't just read about how it is at the Shore, I can taste the salt air, feel its delicious bite in the back of my throat, hear the crash of the waves, be cuddled in the warmth of the blanket against the foggy chill and feel the damp and cold sand squeeze between my toes .... And then he draws me in to feel what he's feeling, the joy, the heartbreak, the love, the friendship. And it's this way with every piece -- intensely personal, vividly real, like Rob himself." (Aileen Mueller, Chicago, IL) "Robert Cozzi is a powerful writer, whose deeply personal writings are full of heart. Warm, moving, and eloquent, his work is eminently relatable to his readers." (Deborah Cantor-Adams Assistant Managing Editor/Senior Editor, The MIT Press) Robert A. Cozzi was raised in Westfield, New Jersey in a loving Irish-Italian family that spent summer vacations along the Atlantic Ocean, frolicking in the surf, chasing seagulls and eating salt water taffy. Educated at James Madison University and New York University, Robert is currently living in Bound Brook, New Jersey where he continues to keep a daily journal, listen to Stevie Nicks and produce short stories, poetry and prose. His mother, Claire Bride Cozzi, also a writer, has inspired and guided his works which are enjoyed once a week by his friends all over the world.
