9780984983780: Still Shakin' With Laughter

As a consequence of being diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and, soon after, cancer, I found myself with a growing pile of paper covered in scraps of poems written to record my experiences and emotions and to help me deal with them. This process is captured in this selection of 24 poems, Still Shakin' With Laughter, my second book of poems dealing with PD. The first is Life Lines.

About the Author:

Anthony and Iris Edey settled in the Pacific Northwest after 15 years in Central Africa followed by periods in Washington State, Colorado and Georgia. They were busily pursuing their respective careers in 1995 when a faulty arm-swing proved to be a sign of Parkinson’s Disease. This news had only just sunk in when, a year later, a minor irritation on his nose proved to be a large and dangerous melanoma which required a total of six surgical procedures and some heavy radiation to subdue. It proved, however, impossible for Tony to continue his career as a globe-trotting mining consultant and he retired in 1997, many years earlier than planned. These events were chronicled in a series of poems which record his reactions, hopes and fears and which eventually became the book ‘Life Lines’, created in collaboration with Iris who had established herself as a talented artist. Her distinctive style of exquisite botanical watercolor proved ideal for the book’s cover and the text was enhanced by her drawings. Although the melanoma has remained in remission, the Parkinson’s Disease continues to progress. So too does the poetry, as evidenced by the 24 poems in this book.
