Contents: "Are we having fun yet? We should be!" So says author and independent bookseller Dwight Currie. For a decade, he's watched readers simplify their lives, stop sweating the small stuff, and stock up on chicken soup. Through it all, he's been convinced that what they really hunger for is permission --
permission to celebrate life's bounteous beauty at this great feast of existence called life.
Responsibility: Dwight Currie.

Abstract:

These fifty-two reflections serve as both guide and companion in a yearlong exploration of all the bounty life has to offer. January advances the notion that life is a banquet. February explores who is invited. March focuses on what we are served in life, and April reminds us that we are all April fools. May deals with our station in life; June with our response to that lot. July is about knowing how and when to say no, and August is for those times when solitude is the goal. September extols the dignity of work, October covers harvest. November is about gratitude and grace, and December's theme is acceptance.
