Beautiful read

by Maleita W on Apr 14, 2011

This book is like hearing the sound of my own soul. It is clear, poetic, and so companioning that I am sure I will re-read it many times as well as pass it on to friends. A great find at a great price! I will definately read more of Mr. Tarrant's work. It is a wonderful book to sit quietly with in the morning before you start your day--re setting your inside clock.


A treasure

by paulpolly on Jan 19, 2009

My ten year old copy of this book is now so worn that I am purchasing a new clean copy and another to pass along to special friends. The insights I gained here when I first read the book were an eye opening change in perspective . ( "...the classical to detach and so cease to suffer. But is is more likely that we pay too little attention to our is our very losses that save us." ) Anecdotal examples show an exquisite understanding of the human experience ("The role of the victim is a solution to the indignities and grief of being human...It is not enough to suffer. There are costumes and arias, recruitment to the cause, and public swooning...") and then take us beyond to discover the unanticipated gifts that are often hidden in our darkest hours. The light inside the dark, if you will. This book has sustained me for many years and sometimes I turn to it to simply enjoy his almost poetic prose. When I want to remember to look at the bigger picture, or when I am feeling intensely blue, I want to read that "it is our thoughts and feelings that make us sad, that the quality of our attention changes the colors of the day."
