I really enjoyed this book, so much so I read it in the span of two sittings. I found I really connected with a lot of Maclear's thoughts, especially her discussions on grief and how it effected her emotionally and creatively. I also thought her observations on the idea of inactivity was intriguing as well, especially when we live in a society that shames people for inactivity, even though it can be a form of self-care or a means to recharge, refocus and figure out next steps. I also loved learning about birds as well, and how each has such unique characteristics. Birds have a sense of simplicity that humans don't. Overall, I thought this was such a great non-fiction read that left me thinking even after I had closed the book.

This author is way too needy, it's basically a self help book.
