liked it

I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. It's a book of brief vignettes that form a memoir of several years. The writer is a published poet who takes two terms of scholar-in-residence at a Benedictine abbey and writes about her thoughts. I grew to feel affectionate about the writer as she talks about metaphor, Emily Dickinson, chanting with the monks, her husband, South Dakota, whatever.

Sister I too enjoyed this book, so much so that I read another one of hers that escapes me right now.
