Synopsis: Travel, like love, invites the mystery of the ?other.? The essays, poems, and visual art in this volume are the works of 24 ?later-life? travelers and offer intimate witness to their transformative journeys as they encounter other lands, other cultures, other times, or as they find ways to see with fresh eyes the rich tapestry of the world that lies near at hand. Share their discoveries of the gifts, costs, and quality of being human ? here, now, in a world moving ever closer and, with collective attention, growing ever more dear. This beautiful, richly illustrated full-color book, 218 pages in length, contains 22 essays and nine poems contributed by 24 writers, artists, and poets. Whether journeying far afield, rambling nearer to home, or as an armchair pilgrim entranced by an exotic page-turner, older readers will be heartened by stories of exploration, contemplation, integration, contribution, and global community-building.
About the Author: Penelope Stuart Bourk, the editor, is a much-traveled writer, weaver, sculptor, and teacher who draws inspiration for her work from myth. Her essays, stories, and poems have appeared in journals, books, and newspapers. A ?second journey? artist with a late-life passion for carving stumps and roots, her multi-media sculpture series contribute to programs at universities, conference centers, and churches in the Northwest. She lives on Whidbey Island in Washington state.
