Treasure of Pearls
Celebrating Life Lived, in Poetry
by Selwyn Almeida

This collection of poems and illustrations celebrates the vision-widening joys of travel and multiculturalism while bringing to light the urgent need for tolerance, love, compassion, and respect for the old, young, and vulnerable. Author Selwyn Almeida believes human values are universal and encourages readers to look beyond the immediate family to society as a whole and learn to share our wealth and kindness with those less fortunate. From childhood to the teen years to retirement and old age, he eloquently explores each phase of our lives and the issues that confront us all while offering sage advice on how to navigate our paths in this global village.
