        I had the exact same thought.

          Finally getting around to it Bill. I'm reading his 4 book season series. I start each on the equinox. Read 'Autumn' and now am in 'Winter'. They are fabulous books, comprised of short succinct chapters that can be read in a 5 minute pocket of the day, but the writing will rattle around in your head for the remaining 23 hours and 55 minutes. I do recommend.

            Sounds like something I could get into.

            My book reading has been quite erratic since the pandemic began. I'm really struggling to get through Tropic of Cancer right now. It's beautiful, but a lot of work, exhausting to follow.

      I am SO fortunate to have been raised by a woman who never lost her sense of juvenescence, awe, connection and reverence for life, it’s beauty and magic. What a precious gift she gave me. The absolute best part about it is that I knew that even back when I was young! I can only hope that my kids feel the same way.

      WOW. I highly recommend this. I'm teaching myself to look at everything, everywhere with awe - so this really hit me where it counts. The writing is so good it's almost overwhelming.
