CM reminds me of the many ways I can be connected with my soul. She blends the personal and the scholarly in a way that the reader feels cared for. I highly recommend her wisdom. World Enough and Time is a great springboard for discussion as well.
Christian is that amazing friend who introduces you to a brighter, more colorful, and altogether more vibrant and loving world. She shares her "circle" of friends and influences generously and with the simple desire to pass along what is good or helpful. Here, you'll meet not only great writers, but walkers, artists, poets, children, philosophers, and epicureans of slowing down.
Christian's "voice" is by turns friendly, elegant, scholarly, inquiring, mournful, and joyful. I love the breadth of experience and feeling in every chapter - a breadth which calls something similar out of me as I read. Best of all, she not only tells us that slowing down is possible and will bless our lives in many ways, but she models on the page exactly how it can be done through well-chosen and interesting stories and examples. In the end, I concluded that the very act of reading her book was a health-giving and joy-giving form of slowing down!
I recommend this book with my whole heart and mind to anyone who loves great writing, graceful living, and wonderful company.
