Catching the Moment Summary

Catching the Moment: A Take on a Lifetime by Gerry Wells

'Catch The Moment with me...luckiest of men'
Author Gerry Wells is a veteran of the dizzy days of the Second World War and Chevalier of the French Legion of Honour. In Catching the Moment he tells about a well lived and well loved life.
He writes eloquently about growing up in Sussex, then doing a stint in the France - Germany Campaign of 1944-45 in a Sherman Tank. After the war he buys a small holding in Wales where he delights in marriage, learns about farming from his kind, patient neighbours and explores the Welsh countryside - all the while telling his tales with humour and a keen observation. Gerry returns to England with his growing family where he becomes a teacher - writing and story telling in a beautiful medieval town. He deals with the sad death of his Mary. He can't believe his luck when years later he meets an Egyptologist 25 years younger than he is. They marry, raise an adored daughter and then tragically Gerry deals with death again as he buries his second wife.
Having loved two wonderful women and raised five children, he now enjoys lunch everyday at his corner table in the local pub in Rutland, after which he walks carefully (he is almost blind) back to his stone house for an afternoon of writing ParaShots. If it's sunny he creates and composes in his garden shed called Bag End. If it's not sunny he's inside near an ancient fireplace.
Compact in size (perfect for a handbag or nightstand) Catching the Moment is a treasure of meditative vignettes for anyone who enjoys reading about the pulses of life.
