“ I haven’t been a very avid reader throughout my life,” he admitted. “I started writing when a relationship didn’t work out. It just kind of grew from there.” “It Doesn’t Take a Whole Day” is basically a book of love poems, he explained, written about that relationship as well as others. There’s a lot in there about how people touch other’s lives, about how someone might be admired. The title comes from, he continued, just a phrase that he’d heard, “It doesn’t take a whole day to recognize sunshine” being the entire phrase. “It doesn’t take long for you to realize the goodness of people, the integrity,” he added.
