A Harvest of Reflections: Wisdom for the Soul Through the Seasons
In this exquisitely rendered book, Justin Matott shares with us the bountiful pleasures that come at the end of the gardening season. For after the harvest, there is still beautiful life -- and from it, nature's wisdom becomes our own. Whether it's the red-twig dogwood in the barren winter landscape or the white fir that helps us remember family unity, the world around us holds magnificence and meaning.
From autumn through winter, Matott embraces the changing of the seasons as he muses on childhood's joys and adult regrets and gives thanks for the abundance of his life, for friends, and family, and especially for the gently lingering presence of his deceased mother.
He helps us see that through the changing seasons, in nature's garden, it is in the roots that life is stored -- ready to replenish the earth and the spirits of all those who walk upon it.
