In this chapbook Eppstein expresses her sense of the connectedness of all things, from rocks to human life. She poses questions about our relationship as humans to the world around us - to wildflowers growing by the side of a road, to newts journeying to the clear streams of their birth. She embraces the cycles of life, from the quickening of an unborn child to premonitions of death.
