'It' is that window, that urgent bright day which reminds us of the possibilities that call us, if only we're willing to step out from our four walls. Each page of 'It' is a dynamic meditation, a burning juxtaposition, a study in inner tension. 'It' is brave- Elza gently takes the reader's hand, and, with her trademark sense of humour asks the critical questions in a compassionate, high-spirited way. The result is the reigniting of that fundamental spark of wonder that exists within all of us. Elza is both teacher and student in this beautiful epistemological exploration.
At first, I puzzled over the spacing, but then I slipped into the spacing and started recalling some of my favorite childhood memories. The world was more alive then, dew on wet feet, carrots fresh from the ground with the earth still clinging, late night questions my brother and I pondered before sleep took over. The childhood wonder of being 3, 4 and 5 again that Daniela Elza captured and returned to me. And then returned me to age 68, where I was pondering philosophy, physics and the current world. I read this right after finishing "Trespassing on Einstein's Lawn," by Amanda Gefter. What a perfect transition. And then, of course, I had to go fix dinner; both worlds would have to wait.
