Synopsis: Like the celebrated "Illuminations" and "Earth Prayers", this modern Book of Hours serves as a "pocket cathedral", inspiring reflection and renewal any time, any place. A collaboration between a writer-poet and a photographer, this book speaks to people's yearning for connection and celebration by contemporizing the medieval Book of Hours - a classical device for "making holy the hours". Tracing the natural rhythms of the day and week, each day is divided into eight periods of guided meditation designed to replenish the reader with beauty, a reminder of the divine presence and reconnect people's souls with the soul of the world.
"But anywhere is the center of the world." -- -- Black Elk
"Every day is a god, each day is a god, and holiness holds forth in time. I worship each god, I praise each day splintered down, and wrapped in time like a husk, a husk of many colors spreading, at down fast over the mountains split." -- -- Annie Dillard
"If the soul could have known God without the world, the world would never have been created." -- -- Meister Eckhart
"The soul is where the inner and outer world meet." -- -- Novalis
