Overview
-

Sydney M. Williams has compiled a medley of essays that reflect on the precious moments of life spent in contemplation, away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday grind. They include his time spent in nature, with friends and family, or reflecting on our nation's current affairs. Within his essays there is an inspiring appreciation of the art of savoring life rather than careening through it, unaware of our surroundings and ourselves.
