Travel Tales

I recently returned from a ten day trip to the West Coast. Aside from the vacation itself offering me time for rest and reflection, the travel time offered plenty of time to read in route. While several other airline passengers were forced to power down their ereaders for take off and landing I kept on turning the pages of my Urbana Free Library book, A Woman's Path: Women's Best Spiritual Writing.

It's a collection of short stories and memoirs by talented female writers on topics of spiritual discovery and transformation that comes through travel. The stories are well-written, represent a diversity of faiths and invite readers into their own contemplation. Enjoy snip-its of discovery and transportation by Anne Lamott, Maya Angelou, Linda Ellerbee, Kim Chernin, Diane Ackerman, Natalie Goldberg, and many other skilled writers. This is an enjoyable read, whether you're taking off to explore the world for yourself through travel or are choosing to "fly" from the comfort of your living room using your imagination; you will be transported!
