Now that that's out of the way, I will say that this book of poems is definitely some of her best work (and I've read a bunch of it!). She has an uncanny ability to dig her fingers into the every day and find the blessing in it. Her work has a "real world" root and deliciously American style reminiscent of Emerson - but with a clarity closer to William Carlos Williams... somewhere between those two - but with this amazing, semi-sanctified feel that I associate with Louise Gluck. She can elevate tasks in a way that "labore est orare" but does so with a voice so keenly rooted in her time and place that it transports you rather than reminds you or inspires you. When we were younger, we used to trade poetry and music like medicine for our emotions... I thank Adrie for providing this beautiful little collection to my apothecary of words... next time I - or my husband, or our friends - find ourselves spinning out in our busy lives in Silicon Valley, I will be thrilled to know that I can pick up this meditation, this blessing, and walk barefoot in the grass, or salt my bread dough, and feed myself.
