this is wonderful. it's a collection of short (the average is probably a page or so) essays written by people from all over america. (some well written, some not.) true snippets from their lives. things that touched them or moved them or memories they had. and unbelievable coincidences and occurrences. it really shows how connected we are as people, and i loved this book for that. such a great reminder of how this universe holds us, and how, if we're watching, we can see beautiful and amazing things. and beautiful and amazing connections.
