In this 2000 book, O'Reilly tells of her experiences
as a Catholic, Quaker, Buddhist spiritual seeker on
an active path she keeps making. She works on a sheep
farm for a year or so,learning everything there is to
raising sheep. Her sense of peace in being around
animals is what brought her there. It also talks of
her time at Plum Village in the south of France, where
Thich Nhat Hanh leads a monastic Buddhist community.
Worthwhile spending time with her in these rambles
and preoccupations. At times a bit patchy and well,
rambling, it is still a good time.
