In a zig-zag journey from my native Midwest to the present, I've lived in a forested yoga ashram and later a desert, been the staff editor for a future Nobel Prize laureate, covered fourteen states as a field representative for a major newspaper syndicate, been isolated from the rest of the world during a volcanic eruption, had my chimney blown away in a nor'easter, been roused by tornadoes while camping, and appeared widely as a poet and writer in literary journals on five continents.
As a newspaper editor, I've designed tens of thousands of pages, cropped at least as many photos, and crafted hundreds of thousands of headlines.
I love Quaker meditation, swimming in the Maine ocean, singing baritone in the choir, dancing New England contras and traditional Greek lines, hiking in the mountains, delving into a symphony or opera, the challenges of contemporary literature and painting, and especially my wife and daughters. I'm not so fond of weeding, raking leaves, shoveling snow, domestic cleaning, dealing with bureaucrats, most medical procedures, or repairing our century-old house. And, yes, we have pet rabbits.

Hodson explores the period of young adulthood to which all of us can draw parallels: the search for someone and the search for meaning. The group at the farm stumbles along, acting and reacting to each other. An enjoyable book by an independent author most likely to be found on a site like Smashwords.
I appreciate the author's offering of a free book. I will be getting another.
