Four Square

by randall ‘Jay’ andrews

Socializing those first years of school, the playground became our retreat from the daily ritual of creating the productive souls we were expected to be behind the desks of elementary education.

We gravitated to games as simple as Four Square, and in the process learned to compete, to share, to gather memories for a lifetime. Our memories were shaped by those around us, by the games we played, by the pets we took care of.

Four authors give their unique but universal take on life, on people and pets no longer here and people and pets still impacting our lives.

Gemini Joe: Memoirs of Brooklyn

by Janet Sierzant

“Crying isn’t bad because it is God’s way of washing away the pain. That’s why we have teardrops.” – Gemini Joe
The runt of the litter, Gemini Joe is no stranger to tears. His life is a storyâ??following the Great Depression and his parents struggle to provide for his family. Survival in his powerful, sometimes cruel family was not easy. Although he remembers with affection and occasional humor the holidays, his childhood friends, his mother and grandmother, his tough, bullying brothers and indifferent sister, his family was too much for him. He found acceptance in a bottle of scotch. Health issues beginning at birth and compounded by an addiction to cigarettes from the age of seven. At the end, he managed to conquer his addictions, but was it too late?
Gemini Joe’s childhood memories inspire sorrow, anger, sympathy, horror, and amusement. As an adult, he inspires forgiveness for the mistakes he made in life and redeemed himself through his considerable talents as an artist, poet, and thinker.

Born in the time of the Great Depression of the 1920s and 1930s, Joe takes us through his childhood, where he, being the youngest child, always seems to be overshadowed by his older siblings and family. He describes their games, the Italian culture in their home and society in the area of New York where they lived, the siblings and their relationships with each other, his own jobs, marriage, and children, his wonderful handyman skills and craft, his alcohol addiction, his health issues, estrangement from his children, and living in a mobile home with a dog towards the end of his life, while at peace with his world for the most part.

Gisela Dixon from Readers Favorite says, “I loved reading Gemini Joe: Memoirs of Brooklyn and it had my attention right from the beginning to the end. It is a simple story of an ordinary life, but that is precisely what makes it special. I enjoyed reading about all of the day-to-day life in their household with the big Italian dinners, fishing, sports, daily life, their connection with what is known as “the Mafia,” and so much more. Janet is able to write as a silent observer and this to her credit because the narrative genuinely feels like Joe talking to the reader and, at times, to his daughter. It’s a very engaging and well-written book and probably one of my favorite memoirs I have read in a long time!”

Searching for the Shire

by Florence St. John

For anyone who has ever wanted to understand codependency, this is a great book. Rather than reading something clinical on the subject, the reader “lives” the codependent’s life through the book. The narrative unfolds naturally and flows well. The message about the care of self-becomes very clear as the story progresses. Seeing how alcoholism changes the people around the alcoholic helps in understanding codependent people and relationshipsâ?¦.. Karen Walpole for Readers’ Favorite

As someone who has lived a co-dependent relationship in the past, I found Searching for the Shire to be a clarion call to my psyche. Reading Florence St. John’s words and deeds, I experienced many “Aha” moments as I was able to relate to her “need to be needed.” I suspect this issue is felt more intensely by women, but as a man who has experienced these issues, I was very easily able to relate to her thought processes and decision making. At the end of the day, this book can give real hope and a path out of co-dependency for anyone suffering from this. The book is simply a summation of St. John’s life that led her to the point of needing to find an answer to her continual problems. My biggest takes from this story were 1: It’s okay to be alone and 2: How can you expect anyone else to love you unconditionally when you don’t even love yourself? I think this book would prove very useful for those suffering from co-dependency or feelings of inadequacyâ?¦ Grant Leishman for Readers’ Favorite

Florence St. John’s Searching for the Shire takes a hard look at dysfunctional family relationships and the legacy of codependency passed on to those who’ve grown up under those conditions. The author’s story is a compelling one, and her voice rings out with honesty, conviction and occasional ruefulness throughout. I found her drive and determination, as exemplified by her determination to build her dream house and her hard-won college degree in Accounting, to be inspirational indeed, and I found myself sighing as she briefly gives up her hard-won freedom, once again, to partner with Daniel. While quite supportive and understanding of many women’s desires to be homemakers, St. John eloquently shows why it wasn’t enough for her and discusses how the collapse of the soundest-seeming marriage can leave a woman with no working skills or experience to fend for herself in the outside world. While her memoir indicates that St. John’s skills are numerical, her memoir is beautifully written and a joy to read. I hope she considers following this effort with a work of fiction next, as she’s a gifted storyteller. Searching for the Shire is most highly recommendedâ?¦ Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite

Searching for the Shire by Florence St. John takes us on a journey of self-discovery through one woman’s life. Growing up in the ’60s and ’70s, at a time when women were seeking more from the world, Florence decided to take the route of least resistance, that of marriage and motherhood. Florence had always felt tolerated, rather than unconditionally loved, as a child and she spent her adult years seeking acceptance and, yes, love, through a series of relationships and/or marriages that it seemed were almost convenient rather than for all the right reasons. This would lead her eventually to the realization that she was co-dependent and always needed others’ approval for her own happiness. In time, she will discover that it is okay to say “No” and it is okay to worry about your own personal mental health, rather than always focus on “fixing up” others.
