The one reinforces and augments the other. May Sarton's poetry and prose excerpts speak about the need to engage with and appreciate this world that we live in, its glories and its tragedies alike. Edith Royce Schade's haunting black-and-white photographs draw out and complement these words in a lovely duet. As May Sarton says on page 36, "making space to be there," to be present in our lives, is a lesson we should all learn every day. Today, Thanksgiving, is a great day to begin. ( )
