Dec 26, 2017 rated it it was amazing
One of my favorite books of the year. Simultaneously reverent and irreverent, if that is possible. Light hearted, but deadly serious in its treatment of aging, love, and the many forms in which the Divine presents itself to us. Evokes and evinces a gratefulness for life and beauty that is at the heart of all good poetry.
