Judith’s Non-Fiction



Edited by Paul Iarribino

Paul was compelled to create this new body of work based on his personal experiences navigating the pandemic. Witnessing and learning from others fueled the energy around creating a collection of stories and poems to give meaning to changed lives in a topsy-turvy world.

Fifteen literary gems are inside for you to examine how COVID has affected people. How similar have your experiences been? Is there an end to this? Will we be better off? Knowledge of others’ experiences with COVID is one step in understanding the answers.

These stories and poems are meant to be read and shared.

Staying Sane in a Crazy World may guide you toward stopping the tumbling and choosing how to take effective control of your life.

From Nursery to Nursing Home

In over 50 plus years working in social services, there isn’t much Judith hasn’t seen or experienced. In Staying Sane in a Crazy World, she draws upon what she has observed working in the lives of people from all walks of life…as well as what’s worked in her own.

Drawing from the wisdom of The Serenity Prayer and the concepts of world-renowned psychiatrist Dr. William Glasser, Judith has crafted a simple process anyone can use to find sanity and make peace with what’s crazy in their life and world.

By the end of this book you’ll have the tools to create your own Personal Staying Sane Plan so that when in doubt you choose love and light.
