The provencal sunlight pours around the pages, because the reader is lightly beckoned to delight in the artistic demanding situations, deep peace, and substantial joys of a contemplative orientation within the world--as noticeable throughout the lens of the author's Sabbatical season spent in a ravine-edged hermitage, embraced by means of an historical olive grove, nestled inside a Medieval French village within the Maritime Alps.
Gifts for the reader abound within the exploration of such issues as presence, silence, simplicity, stability, neighborhood, generosity. This contemplative memoir celebrates the reward of sacred solitude (hermitage), the wonderful thing about construction (olive grove), and the large dignity of every existence, human or animal (village.) With easy eloquence, the villagers themselves--through the day-by-day humility, hot humor and integrity in their personal lives--encourage readers to appear inside of: to obtain and rediscover, but extra deeply, the intrinsic good looks and profound reward in their personal lives.
With delicate and compassionate brush-strokes, verbal work of village existence come to be such innovations as emptying and establishing, living within the middle, residing within the "now" are encountered--not in a didactic approach yet fairly in an attentive breathing-in of what every one current second deals. Cafe-table chats and sacramental altars are found, no longer as polarities, yet as interconnected: the secular and the non secular famous as a mutually-embracing expression of the dance of lifestyles and wonder within the One Love--sustaining the soul and nourishing the heart.
