"How are we to stay? once we are performed with offering and purchasing, once we have had sufficient noise, nonsense and negativity, once we not desire to assemble up trophies, toys and talismans, what's left? will we see a depressing wall or a shimmering edge?

Written with the knowledge of adulthood and the adventure of a Psychologist with a Zen, Contemplative, Twelve Step heritage, this booklet is a magazine of a 70th birthday yr. November Roses addresses problems with getting older, restoration and spirituality with either humor and candor because it lines a memorable passage. A yr of demanding situations. A yr of mindfulness. A 12 months of existence at the edge.
