True to its title, "Miracles & Mischief" by Vernon Crumrine is a tasty cerebral treat. The audio version, read by Peter Bohush, is a half-hour of poetic pie that satiates the senses and exercises the brain.
Bohush's rich vocal talents are a delightful complement to Crumrine's words, painting an array of scenes and visions; ideas and reflections. Topics range from Marilyn Monroe to motorcycle crashes; the nature of the Universe to children's take on Love.
Vernon expresses complex thoughts in simple yet eloquent words, making even the largest themes digestible and, at times, comedic. Also sharing his own personal experiences, the reader (or listener) is invited to take a peek through Vernon's pair of World-Windows.
Mark Twain once said, "My works are like water. The works of the great masters are like wine, but everyone drinks water.". I'm not one to compare any writer's words to that of another, but I would say Twain's statement surely applies to Vernon Crumrine.
