In "Walking About," Reva Griffith takes us on meditative walks through city streets, observing neighbors and changing seasons, and along beaches with their ceaseless rhythms. She pauses to note family events, recalled with a smile, and to stand in vigil as witness for the values she upholds. Reva writes from the heart, embracing life, but with tender knowledge of death, through the loss of a son as well as friends and other family. Always, compassion and unique vision illuminate these well-crafted poems by a Quaker woman.
