Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book.

Book Preview: #1 Our senses and what they give rise to are, when well-contemplated, mind-boggling in every respect. We tend to take them for granted and underappreciate their scope and depth, if we appreciate them at all.

#2 The poet David Wright describes the experience of his deafness as seldom being devoid of a sense of sound. He notes that the sound of the rain, which he had never before paid much attention to, now delineates a whole landscape for him.

#3 We can learn and be astonished by the capabilities of those who have suffered the loss of one or more sense, and made extraordinary accommodations and adjustments in both body and mind to fashion a full life. We can learn from purposefully giving some attention to the natural world, which beckons to us and offers itself to us through all our senses at once.

#4 The spell of the sensuous is no further than the sound of the rain taken in, the feel of the air on the skin, the warmth of the sun on our backs, or the look in your dog’s eye when you come near. We can feel it, know it, and be embraced by it.
