Rocchio’s writing style reveals a remarkable and skillful use of simple words and phrases. Brevity makes his messages a pleasurable and relaxing activity for his readers.
Inspired by the people and events in Coldwater and Branch County, Michigan, Rocchio’s words paint a colorful portrait that both exposes and contrasts the contradictions and opposites we encounter in our daily life.
Messages about routine ordinary events and simple common occurrences provide opportunities for us to discover the spiritual essence and creative potential of life.
Without being starchy, avoiding partisan politics, and respecting the intelligence of his readers, by use of descriptive words and subtle phrases Rocchio challenges us to reflect on and embrace his inspirational image of our shared humanity.
Simple, personalized stories based upon real people, community, events, holidays, and life lessons are the tools used to encourage us to recognize and appreciate the wonder of life existing around us.
As a prominent or central theme inserted throughout, this marvelous book encourages us to celebrate human life as a miracle to be lived, not a problem to be solved.
Rocchio’s first published work is a small book of writings containing a big message for every grateful reader.
