This is beautiful writing, full of wonder and especially admiration for nature. I've always had deep cynical tendencies, in the Diogenes sense of that word, and while the pandemic was bringing those back to the surface this book lit them on fire. It doesn't offer pleasant answers, and maybe that's realistic, but it does offer beauty and sympathy that I was grateful for.
