This book was like a long walk in a new neighborhood on a gorgeous day. No particular destination in mind, but everywhere you looked there was something new to see and explore. Most essays were short, but a few covered a couple pages. Topics ranged from delight in reading poetry, to a good cup of coffee, to greeting strangers, to gardening, and just being alive and able to write about daily delights. Serious or light, these essays were delightful.
