About The Book
Bears, birds, cats, whales, oceans the earth itself must call it a day.
Just the time to pick out this book, climb on a lap, and listen.
Just the time to watch the light rise and fall at the corners of your eyes - to doze, to sigh, to say to this day, this one among many, shhhhhh shhhh good-bye.
