I like to read one or to of the short pieces each day, though lately I try to pace myself because I don't want it to end...
The writing is clear, vivid and serene, and instills in me a feeling of sipping crystal water from a forest spring. The book is a meditation on place, and contains little drops of insight that I personally felt very enriched by, I have highlighted many passages.
I recommend it to anyone interested in clear awareness and simple living, being close to nature, to anyone who enjoys standing in the wind and rain and feeling alive and small and growing and changing with the seasons.
