The 28-day journal of an ordinary woman seeking to understand her identity at mid-life, as she sought to learn how to live more closely with her creator and her fellow travelers on the Earth. Contained in these few pages are all her thoughts about family, philosophy, religion, child-raising, and the kind of creativity accessible to everyone. Edited and with commentary by her son, this intimate record of a personal spiritual search also becomes both memoir and a memorial to its author, who passed away in 2000.
