Cold Moon: On Life, Love, and Responsibility
Fragments. Those who pay attention to the night sky know that the full moon that arrives in December is called the “cold moon.” I had the good fortune to read Roger Rosenblatt’s wise book titled, Cold Moon: On Life, Love, and Responsibility, just after the latest cold moon arrived to announce the winter solstice. Acknowledging his own arrival in the winter phase of life, Rosenblatt offers in this book fragmentary reflections that celebrate being alive, that remind us of the centrality of love, and that focus our attention on the meaning that we find when we extend care to others and become responsible to specific individuals. It can be easy to get distracted as we muddle through life, and in this wise book, Rosenblatt helps us gain and retain focus on those things that really matter. He brings light to the dark nights of winter. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Cold Moon from amazon.com.
