John Edwards grew up in the small Bay Area bedroom community of San Lorenzo, California, a twin son of a Korean War veteran turned patternmaker for the Alameda Naval Air Station. After a school career that included St. Joachim’s Catholic, Arroyo High School, Chabot College, and the prestigious St. Mary’s College of California, he married young, at twenty-six, and settled in Martinez, California. Growing up, he was fascinated with Professional Sports and American History, which led to meeting such notables as Willie Mays, Reggie Jackson, John Brodie, Kenny Stabler, John Madden, Lon Simmons, Bill King, and former Congressional Representatives George Miller, Pete Stark, and Vic Fazio.
Before becoming a full-time writer, John had a long and distinguished Business Management career for two of the most preeminent organizations in their industry, United Parcel Service and Enterprise Holdings, Inc. In What a Tale My Thoughts Will Tell: Words Not to Be Forgotten, John explores and chronicles how joyous and traumatic life transitions shape our choices and decisions, ultimately leading us on a path of understanding. A California Bay Area native, John Edwards currently lives in El Dorado Hills and works for another world-class organization, Safeway.
Life often evolves differently than we had hoped or expected. Some of life’s transitions lead to a love we have only dreamed of, but others can traumatize and overwhelm us completely. As a result, we feel discouraged and disenchanted as we quietly start to wonder about the meaning of life.
John Edwards understands this deeply as he takes us on an elegant, insightful, and profound journey of his personal experiences that are a jumping-off point for discussing how cultural, psychological, and sociological influences determine the nature of our happiness and disappointments. John invites us into his incredible odyssey of life events with humor, vulnerability, and courage. In his story, he explores the challenges of navigating through the joy of falling in love, providing for his family, and the painful disruptions of infidelity, divorce, and estrangement with passion and empathy.
A unique and beautifully written book that interweaves the theme of musical songs and lyrics as a timeline and vehicle of emotional expression that mere written words could not suffice.
John writes, “Music binds us in a way that language rarely does. Music is the window to the soul.” With the authority and wisdom that come with seventy years of human existence, John Edwards provides a compassionate and compelling story relatable to almost every human emotion we feel.
It is a story of where John came from, what hopes and dreams he fought for, and what single dynamic is most important regarding the true meaning of life. It’s the story of his life. This book should be read as it is extraordinary and unforgettable. It will bring forth lessons and memories of your encounters that will forever be carved into your hearts.
