Book Review

Brian Doyle's novel 'Cat's Foot' is a remarkable adventure in reading

Book review: An obvious labor of love by the late Brian Doyle, Cat's Foot is about finding the sacred in the ordinary, forging a sense of wonder through minute exquisite details, and facing the truths and cruelty of war.


The joy of turtles

Soul Seeing: For many years now, I have pondered the story of the turtles, wondering why it moved people so. I decided it was because of the happy ending. Life is filled with challenges, hardships, suffering and loss for all of us; we've all known heartbreak.
