Diana Kanoy tells her tales of true adventure swimming in a rural Florida lake through prose, poetry, and photography- an unusual perspective! Learn how to be safe around Florida waters while enjoying many points of view, including the alligators' own. Both humor and seriousness are underpinned by environmental awareness and a deep appreciation for the spirit of nature.
From whimsical, to harrowing, to meditative, they take the reader through a range of emotions and reactions, sparked by serene moments and brutal truths of an apex predator with big teeth and small brains. These pages may induce laughter, admiration, shock, disgust, and contemplation, all the while engaging the reader in a unique style. The poems are intended to evoke full appreciation of the spectrum of nature- from the savage to the sublime.
