Richard Todd Canton delivers his newest reflections on life in “Food for Thought”
TRURO, Nova Scotia (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
In his new memoir “Food for Thought: A Working Man’s Guide to Life” (published by iUniverse), Richard Todd Canton takes a sentimental look back at his humble beginnings in his long career in the food business.
Canton takes readers along as he recounts his journey through life, love and other lessons. As he describes it, his life has been that of a working man. He is one of nine children, and he earned his first job in a restaurant at just 12 years old. Since then, Canton has taken in everything he can of his surroundings, learning from the people he considers masters in their fields, while absorbing inspiration from anything around him.
An excerpt from “Food for Thought”:
"Life is a struggle at the best of times. Think about it, weren’t we put on this earth to climb one mountain after the other? It all starts with birth. We have had to fight our way out of our mother’s body, fight for your first breath of air. Even learning how to walk is a struggle. Toss in a disease or two, learning to ride a bike, entering relationships, and life in general, it really is really one hurdle after another. Having said that, it always surprises me how whiny people can be when forced to face life and all it has to offer."
“Food for Thought,” while technically a memoir of his experiences growing up in the food business, is largely a tribute to the people who have influenced and shaped Canton over the years.
Canton hopes readers find a way to reconnect with the people who helped shape them into the people they are today through his, as he says, quirky perspective on stories of heart and home.
