In the ordinary can often be found the extraordinary. The ordinary is not
the things that happen to us on a day-to-day basis but
is the thing that brings order to our day-to-day lives.
In this collection of poetry, Carol Anderson brings us the beauty
and wisdom of the ordinary and shows us the sacred things in our lives.
Between the memories of her parentsí hands and deceased friends,
she shows us glimmers of her life,
and does so with the voice of a versatile mature poet.

Ordinary is not a mundane collection of poems but a work that seeks to
find the extraordinary in the everyday. With attention to diction,
line break and stanza, Carol M. Anderson investigates the vortex
between fear and faith, and does so insightfully.
Author of The Art and Craft of Poetry
Carol Anderson takes the familiar in our everyday happenings and finds
the anguish, insight, and grace that are the poetical core of common
experience. This is an 18-foot tall Victory Candle to life, and the
poems form a wick that burns bright in the readerís imagination.
President, Poets' Club of Chicago
With these deeply felt poems Carol M. Anderson illuminates the loves
and losses of an "Ordinary" life lived at extraordinary depth. I was
extremely moved by them.
