Everyday Magic features the best of Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg's blog of the same title, exploring the mundane and miraculous unfolding around us, and how to live with greater verve, meaning and joy. Journey through whimsical, tender, and fierce explorations of travel and homecoming, beloveds and the art of loving, grief and resilience, the arts and politics, spirit and being a body, and many other glimpses of being all-too-human in an astonishing world. "Reading this book is like having a wise friend take you by the hand and walk you down a healing path," writes Harriet Lerner, Ph.D author of NYTimes bestseller The Dance of Angerand Why Won't You Apologize? "It's wonderful to feel so deeply inspired by a world that feels so deeply familiar," writes Dar Williams, Singer-songwriter, and author of What I Found in 1,000 Towns. Kansas Poet Laureate Kevin Rabas writes, "Like Da Vinci, Caryn is in love with the world, knows its many ways, excels at all she does, and captures the hidden emotion behind what she studies. My world opens up, when I read these. Yours will too." Caryn will also read from her spanking new collection of poetry, Following the Curve, poetry that journeys into the cusp of art and soul to explore what it is to be a body across life changes and ages.
