Travels and Tribulations by Tyrel Nelson
Image item
In the spring of 2020, Tyrel Nelson lost his mother. And he lost his job in the summer. Isolated by the pandemic and hamstrung by agony, he felt forgotten by the world as it marched on. Unhappy, uneasy, and unemployed, he began picking himself up by putting down his thoughts on a yellow legal pad.
Battling through his bereavement on paper proved to be cathartic. But he needed more – a writing project he could sink his grief into. So he sorted through many of the narratives he had composed over the last dozen years. Reflecting and reexamining his existence, Tyrel brainstormed what to do with the pieces which pulled at him the most. A compilation describing significant individuals, places, and moments during the past decade-plus started to take shape.
“Travels and Tribulations” is an emotional collection of vignettes, which commences in 2008 and concludes in 2020. While readers follow him on excursions in North, Central, and South America, they also accompany Nelson to the peaks and valleys of his personal life. Profoundly impacted by the deaths of both his parents, the author guides the audience through his anguish, depicting reminiscences and regrets as he openly tries to make sense of everything.

Stella is a large mastiff mutt with a white stripe on her head and four white tipped paws.  Stella and her family move to a new house with lots of space to run free and play by the river’s edge. The only thing Stella doesn’t have at her new house is friends.  She desperately tries to make friends with the local animals, but no one will play with her.
Readers will be happily surprised to find that Stella’s new friend was right under her nose all along.
