It seems that in life sometimes maybe on rare occasions we meet someone worth emulating or patterning ourselves after to some degree if not a large degree. In many respects these particular people live on even after they are gone. Their achievement, their integrity, their honor, and their care for others inspire us. They continue to live as we carry their memory. They continue to live partly through what we do. Cary Hughley IS one of those people. His example stands today. There is no wonder in why his sister published his poems. Every time I read III Gifts by Carey Hughley I see several additional nuances that not only touch me in a profound way but also gain my respect all the more. Books can be good friends as they are extensions of the author. That's why I'm introducing anybody reading my blogs to this one.
