Year of Flight chronicles a calendar year as only a poet in love with the world can. Join Deborah Grace as she renders the mundane, from broody hens to choosing paint for her bathroom, miraculous. Journey with her as she discovers that everyday acts and objects such as dish towels, bottles of bleach, dating and cartwheels are opportunities for contemplation and communion.
Grace is the woman you want beside you, equally bemused and bewitched by this jumble sale of life. From carpool to moonlit swim, each moment pivots on gossamer wings, from the central point of understanding. Grace’s exhilaration of the odd corners of our lives is rare sustenance for the soul.
