Conversations with Nature (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
"Once, we were one form among many in the Garden. We learned to hear the voices of the mountains, the rivers, the sky, of silence. The mice spoke, the trees spoke, the stars spoke, the deer and the fox spoke, the snake spoke--and from these words we made being. These words formed great cities and their machines ever clamoring, and we let the silence slip and the words of the whispering world fall away beyond the mirror of our making." (from the prologue)
These eighteen meditations, amplified by Jerry Shearing's striking illustrations, offer luminous words enlivened with the weight of much listening. Through these "conversations," Peter Owen Jones offers a pathway to reconnect with nature. Just a few sentences a day provides sustenance for the soul.
