One of my desert island books. Lovely pieces from all over the place, including Thomas Merton and Raymond Carver as standouts (for me). Much to learn. ( )

A book which shares vignettes of spare poetry about the beauties of unencumbered living. Drawn from disparate sources, both literary and real life, the brief chapters in this book show the minimal material possessions that are required for living fulfilled lives. Some of the vignettes are of well-known figures like Edward Abbey, Thoreau, Merton, Muir, and Werner Herzog; others, drawn from literature include Ishmael, Father Zossima, and Bilbo Baggins; yet others were unfamiliar to this reader, including Dolores Garcia, Father Terence and Emma Gatewood. This book is worth meditating upon as a reminder of what is essential for living a life. ( )
