Traveling on a Gravel Road: An Exploration of Life, Love, and The Quest For Happiness

Jennifer Conta

Many of us find it difficult to overcome obstacles in our lives and achieve true happiness within ourselves. We constantly search and search for greener grass to only find ourselves falling short of true "happiness". Part of the problem is that we create unreasonable expectations, making the search for eternal bliss in our life experiences and love relationships an impossible task. If we are always searching for the hidden garden of euphoria, we will never be happy. Gravel Road entwines poetry and text to explore the follies and pitfalls we face in both our daily life experiences and romantic relationships and offers creative and inspirational solutions to these common dilemmas. This book also examines the mystique of physical attraction and is counterparts: love, lust, and infatuation. What causes us to feel so deeply for another human being? Why do we bore so easily in a committed relationship, yet feel an insatiable wanting for someone we barely know? Also included are selected writings about the darker side of humanity: evil and its origins, incarceration and its effects on the mind and spirit, and capital punishment vs. redemption. Is a man more than the worst thing he ever does? Gravel Road artfully touches on basic human emotion in an attempt to shed light on different perspectives and experiences and to instill wisdom and inspiration to its readers.
