The Sweetness Of Life



Whatever you love, this book is an invitation to cherish the lightness and grace of existence; to taste fully the joy of being alive.

What makes your life sweet?

We spend so much of our time focused on the things we must do every day, that sometimes it's easy to forget those moments that make life worth living; the real sweetness of life. 

Coffee in the sun, the bliss of fresh autumn evenings, being scared in the cinema, running in warm rain, long conversations at twilight, eating outdoors with your fingers, watching a craftsman at work, listening to crickets, reconnecting with friends . . . 

Whatever you love, this book is an invitation to cherish the lightness and grace of existence; to taste fully the joy of being alive.
