Every morning Jacob Watson, an interfaith minister and spiritual teacher, would meditate and walk outside, and after a while he received the gift of these brief meditations, which he would then share with his colleagues. There are more than 160 of them here. They are calm and peaceful; they use images from nature and the landscapes of coastal Maine; and they are expressed with an intense poetic sensitivity. We too can make the most of these letters in the morning, to set the tone of the day and to set a calm mood. They will increase our appreciation of life in all its complexity and beauty, and we too can share them with those around us.
