Nadel's enthusiasm for the sport of windsurfing is contagious, and gives readers insights into this phenomenally challenging and rewarding sport. What touches me most profoundly about "Dancing with the Wind" is the way Nadel shows how her appreciation for life's mystery and magic deepens and unfolds, as she finds ways to surf the infinite eternal moment of "now" and gets back up on her windsurf board to ride again. Nadel reminds us that through life's uncertainties, even though our health may suffer, and even though our jobs and relationships may end... as long as life goes on, there exists opportunity for happiness, however fleeting each miraculous moment of total joy may be.
Her meditations include visits with a wide range of thoughtful authors, including Jung, Camus, Matthiessen, and a bibliography at the end lets you follow up to continue the journey you began with her. Highly recommended.
