Peculiar and poignant in equal amounts, this book of daily reflections is Ed Hays unplugged and spurs us to find delight and wonder in the ordinary.

Contains a reflection for each of the 365 days of the year (each entry approximately one page long), celebrating holy days and holidays, feast days and famous days of the past and glimpses into the future. It marks accomplishments of yesterday that call the reader to live well tomorrow and points out "pedestrian" prophecies of the past, off-target predictions that show the folly of forecasting, especially those predictions that limit our possibilities. This is not a one-year almanac but will take ten years to digest its wisdom and wit.While debunking prophets of gloom and doom, The Old Hermit's Almanac does challenge readers to change themselves, to examine themselves for any narrowness off heart and mind, any prejudices, injustice or lack of faith, for a leisureless lifestyle that squeezes out silence, a sense of meaning, Compassion and playfulness. It invites the reader to live with hope in the
