Birds, art, life : a year of observation
By Kyo Maclear
A writer’s search for inspiration, beauty, and solace leads her to birds in this intimate and exuberant meditation on creativity and life. Moving with ease between the granular and the grand, peering into the inner landscape as much as the outer one, this is a deeply personal year-long inquiry into big themes: love, waiting, regrets, endings.
Embers : one Ojibway’s meditations
By Richard Wagamese
Richard Wagamese finds lessons in both the mundane and sublime as he muses on the universe, in this, his last, and most personal, book. Honest, evocative and articulate, he explores grief, joy, recovery, beauty, gratitude, physicality and spirituality–concepts many find hard to express. Readers will find hard-won and concrete wisdom from this self-declared “spiritual bad-ass”.
