Read from July 15 to August 18, 2012

This was a beautifully written, poetic collection of nature essays. The author is a philosophy professor, and I loved the philosophical rumblings of many of the essays. I am interested in finding more of her writings & now planning a trip to Mt. St. Helens. Reading was a bit slow for my - the essays are beautiful and thought-provoking, so I wanted to savor and mull over them. Recommended.

The book is described as being a collection that grew from the author's grief a several people she knew passed away close to the same time. I chose to read it at this time because I had just lost a much beloved cat. However, that was really a very minor thread in the essays, and given where I was, I was kinda hoping for more.
