Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964775123, Paperback)

In this sensitive story about breaking out of the isolation of depression and connecting with life again, author Keith Gaddy Davis gently moves the reader to the realization that small kindnesses have far reaching, profound impact. Davis reminds us that essentially we are compassionate human beings who thrive in connection with other living things.

In his natural storytelling style, Davis recounts the story of a person isolated in depression, withering away like an oxalis plant neglected on top a bookcase. Both "stayed alive yet ceased to live." Eventually through witnessing the remarkable renewal of the oxalis plant, the narrator moves through the tangled depression and feels hopeful about life again.

The words, "Is there something I can do? I'd like to help," forever will possess a deeper significance.
