Just Between Us is a celebration of the
vivid human connections that occur
when traveling through some of the
world’s most stirring landscapes. David
McElroy, a former pilot, transports us
from the Arctic to the tropics, over rural
and urban lands, and even into the
landscape of dreams. Throughout his
verse is a sense of longing and the desire
for intimacy, showing that despite
our diverse lives, we are all driven to
share our existences with one another.
“Just Between Us touches that sweet
spot between poet and writer with its
palpable appreciation of the many
facets of the lives we are given to lead.
Reading Just Between Us releases endorphins
that allow us to embrace our
own lives with an extra burst of energy,
strength, and joy.”—Merrily Weisbord,
author of The Love Queen of Malabar
McElroy has a sharp sense of humor and whimsy. . . . Offers rewards on each page rendered in brief handfuls of words.
