John Archer of Concord signed a contract with PublishingWorks of Exeter to publish his book of verses "Walking Backward Towards Old Age."
Archer said several years ago, he came across some poems he wrote in 1930, and decided to begin writing again. Before he knew it, he had completed several new verses.
"I started writing and the verses get away from me. They turned serious, and then I had to keep up with them."
Archer said he doesn't want to influence people or teach them anything, but instead his book is just his thoughts.
"I've arrived at the point in life when you can ask questions and there are no answers," he said.
Seriously, this sounds super neat. I'm very curious as to what Mr. Archer's thoughts might be. He definitely doesn't sound "bored with life", that's for sure!
