Hand Wash Cold : Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life
It‰_s easy to think that meaning, fulfillment, and bliss are ?out there,‰_ somewhere outside of our daily routine. But in this playful yet profound reflection on awareness, the compelling voice of a contemporary woman reveals the happiness at the bottom of the laundry basket, the love in the kitchen sink, and the peace possible in one‰_s own backyard. Follow Karen Maezen Miller through youthful ambition and self-absorption, beyond a broken marriage, and into the steady calm of a so-called ordinary life. In her hands, household chores and caregiving tasks become opportunities for self-examination, lessons in relationship, and liberating moments of selflessness. With attention, it‰_s the little things ‰ÛÓ even the unexpected, unpleasant, and unwanted things ‰ÛÓ that count.
