KayLynn took notice of the small rituals and routinesgardening, laundry, grocery shoppingthat made up Bert's life. A friendship slowly developed as KayLynn began photographing parts of Bert's day.

Containing seventy-eight photographs along with poems written by Bert, his clock drawings, and personal family photographs, The Day-to-Day Life of Albert Hastings gives the reader a glimpse into one man's life.
