Adult Inspirationa Writing: Compass Season book cover.

Nature's Gentle Healing for a World Sometimes Gone Out-of-Control

Ever longed for breathing room in the out-of-doors? Have you wished you could go far away from the hustle of daily life even for moments? This book might be for you. Food-for-thought in 40 short chapters. Adult inspirational writing and a good read for a friend or for you to enjoy. 

A Book for the Lake
Makes a Great Vacation Book.
A Book for the Cottage: Nature's Poetry of Life book cover

Poetry for the Harried & Hurried

I think I know what you’re thinking. But this is not your grandparents rhyming poetry (though this too can be elegant). Like a watercolor painting, Who's Watching Who? captures the key idea quickly. It leaves plenty of white space for you to draw your own conclusions.


A fine book for the cottage during a rainy stay. A great vacation book to add enjoyment to your visit.

Beautiful and haunting all at the same time.

The way we look at new information these days is to check details out. We learn what others experience has been. It isn’t foolproof. But it gives us a general sense of whether things have value. 


Here are remarks by individuals who have read Compass Season. They have included their opinions in Amazon Reviews. I’ve linked to more comments about this adult book about nature 2019 if interested.

"This is a must read for those looking for place, space

and wanting to slow down the race."

licensed therapist, to offer depth, insight, comfort,

humor, challenge, and motivation."


"Beautifully written, I know I will find myself
