Each chapter is a reminder that time is not running out. You don’t have to rush to experience a sense of joy, wonder, and adventure. It’s yours for the taking, whenever you are ready for it. You can claim the “now” while watering the lawn, taking a seven-year-old to soccer practice, buying a new pair of shoes, or daydreaming about opening a small bookstore across the street from the bank.
This book is a must-read for anyone who enjoyed Véronique Vienne’s now-classic The Art of Doing Nothing—and a perfect gift for anyone who believes that the ultimate art of living is to make each minute count.
Beautifully illustrated with radiant photographs by Ann Rhoney, The Art of the Moment celebrates the very special joie de vivre that is your birthright.
