I attended an Ignatian Silent Retreat and this book was read at one of the talks during the retreat. Amazing addition for anyone celebrating their own journey.

This short book is almost poetry in its graphic description of memorable natural events in the desert American southwest.

make a celebration book, go outdoors and observe and write down what you see or brings things in bags

A desert dweller discusses the holidays she shares with the animals in the desert, and how this mean she is never lonely. Both words and pictures in this book are gorgeous, and evoke a sense of being alone without being lonely. The theme of enjoying life for what it is is explored through the girl's creation of celebrations that mean something personal to her, usually to do with nature.

Many years ago a doctor suggested I read this daily for 60 days prior to going outside. It was great for me and for the kids (I only read it to them some of the time). We re-learned to celebrate everything mother nature sent our way; it helped get us past a great loss and a sizeable change of lifestyle.
