Read in December, 1995, read count: too many to count

This book means so much to me. It sounds cliché but this is the book that made me realize I could leave New England behind and create a life in a land of cacti, green chile, and desert sunrises, that I was not doomed to "bloom where I was planted" if where I was planted stifled me, and that The title intrigued my sixteen-year-old self because - let's be honest - at that age who isn't trying to wake up and figure it all out? Natalie Goldberg seamlessly blends themes of loneliness, love, spirituality, and heartbreak into a cri de coeur for kindness to all and awakening to the reality and hope inherent in our daily lives. The resulting work is divine.
