A chance encounter with a boy on a bicycle, a young girl's graduation from eighth grade — these and other small moments are the subjects of this beautifully written collection. In elegant prose, Kent Nerburn uncovers the wonder hidden just beneath the surface of everyday life, offering poignant glimpses into the grace of ordinary days. Whether he's describing a kite's dance on the winds above the high New Mexico desert, a funeral on an isolated Indian reservation, or a dinnertime conversation among family and friends, Kent Nerburn is among a handful of writers capable of moving so gently over such deep waters. The Hidden Beauty of Everyday Life reveals the sacred moments waiting to be discovered in each and every life.
