She calls us to live compassionately with each person and particle of creation. She challenges us to hear the pain of the planet and to care for the earth and its inhabitants. Most of all, she draws us to fuller enjoyment and appreciation of life and its unbreakable goodness in ourselves and in everyone and everything around us.
Beautiful full-color art by Mary Southard accompanies the text. Together they fill our souls with feelings of awe, gratitude, and love. The Cosmic Dance is a melody that each of us is dimly aware of; after reading this book, we will hear it sing.
