Taking a Cruise on a Dusty Gravel Road
by Kelly Ried

“I fell upon a caravan of destiny unknown …”

Taking a Cruise on a Dusty Gravel Road is a collection of personal accounts and day-to-day observations about life, love, family and nature—moments in time filtered through a poet’s senses. The sound of a revving Harley. The sweet smell of rains and morning dew. Crossroads that streak the day and night. A glimpse of past and present. “I come to that place where true love and grace make me feel like staying.” Share each personal encounter and savour the laughter, lightness and reflections on the gift of life.

Kelly Ried is a self-avowed romantic. He is inspired by music, art and literature. The depth of Kelly’s experiences come from being a father of five grown children, marriage to a wonderful lady, musical passion and a curiosity about the world around him. When he’s not driving down country roads, the poet enjoys listening to life, laughing with family and friends, and walking. “When I walk, it feels as if my world is real and up close.” The author lives in St. Catharines, Ontario, with his wife, four foster children and two lovely dogs in a home “where life moves and breathes.”
