    Unfortunately, in our present age, it is not often that we get many opportunities to have someone touch the positive "Fruits of the Spirit" within us. But with "Mud Puddles," this book of written thoughts by published poet Dustin Rivers, an individual is given a refuge to offset our current society's fixation with in-your-face everything. Rivers has a degree of insight that takes the reader to the extreme edges of our senses and experiences. His chosen vehicles are word-couplings and story-telling, which creates almost limitless paradigms of gentleness, caring and deligh6t. As always, it becomes a personal matter to pick and choose what is to be retained. There is a diversity of thought-provoking offerings. So find a quiet spot, sit comfortably, and read, read, read - letting "Mud Puddles" surround and envelop your heart, mind and soul. You won't be able to put the book down. Whether it's the sheer beauty found in the poem, "Just A Little Song";... More > the wisdom of phrases such as "if you're not having fun you're playing the wrong game"; or the oh-so-hilarious moments in "Thelma & Clyde" or "Submerged" - the latter an encounter (!) between the writer and a giant clam "eyeing (him) for lunch." I laugh every time I think of the situation, much less go back and re-read it! Although a fairly recent gift to the public, Rivers' artistry will definitely, continually, be a major factor toward anyone's inner development. The reality he sees is true and lasting. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mr. Dustin Rivers! The world, these days, is a much, much better place because you and your creative abilities are now a part of it!< Less
