This is a 'generationless' book. I am in my late 40's, and I found many of his words resonating with me at this point in my life but also could have felt the same way in my 20's. The writings leave the reader feeling expansive and connected to life. His writings cover relationships, nature, subtle experiences that are so incredibly human in their nature that we don't realize what is happening in our hearts, mind and body while we are moving through them. It is only afterward and with reflection where we become clear. I highly recommend this book.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who appreciates the wonder and mystery of nature, life and death. Whyte's words will surely touch your heart!
Naturally I wanted to read a book of his poetry (he'd read many of his poems in the CD's). I was not disappointed. Even having heard them, reading them to myself I was surprised that he crystallized and spoke what I was thinking and feeling, seemingly knowing it better than I myself.
As the title would suggest its predominant theme is belonging, and of coming to feel belonging by coming to recognize yourself, or the struggle to recognize yourself. His method is not to be obscure but to be observant and put that into language that you ... well I have a quote of his that says, "Poetry is the art of creating language against which there is no defense." He does just that. I am coming to understand more and more how he believes we must all set aside time to write, mediate, pray, or read poetry. They are all variations on the theme of observing who we are, the world around us, and how we can belong in that world and in our own skins. If you are on the journey to find belonging I'd whole heartily recommend the couple hours it takes to read this poetry.
