The Love Of Impermanent Things - Paperback

BY MARY ROSE O'REILLEY

Brief Description:
At midlife, Mary Rose O'Reilley reflects on her past and her hard-won sense of self. She tries to see the world through the eyes of the deer that stop outside her window and look in at her. As a wildlife rehabilitator, she feels a closer connection to this natural world as experienced by animals. As an apprentice potter, she sees in a Japanese tea bowl the ultimate balance of action and contemplation. As a Quaker, she can both sit still and sing. And as a writer, O'Reilley can speak clearly to readers at midlife who are expected to know it all, but don't.
