People seeking inspiration at any time, for brief moments or all in one sitting as the stories are short and self-contained. People of all ages and of varied life experiences will be touched by the common, everyday approach. Caregivers and professionals alike will appreciate the fresh ideas and tangible alternatives presented in each cluster of stories.

"How can I transform this into a spiritual experience?" "How shall I deal with this and maintain a caring relationship?"
