Overview

With creative innocence in her brush and wry wit in her pen, island resident Sandy Gingras offers a delightful "how to" book that reminds us to "float" and "make a splash"; to "ebb and flow" and "run with waves" or "laugh like a gull"; to "sugar yourself with sand," to "walk tender" and to "thank." With charming illustrations and common-sense spiritual wisdom, this endearing book gently encourages us to live life on simpler terms—whether your island is in the water or in your mind. How to Live on an Island gives us an opportunity to reflect on the simplest and most important things—ourselves and our relationships with others in this world. It�s a full-color, illustrated philosophy that will enchant you. Originally published as a paperback, this book has been expanded with a thoughtful introduction by the author in a new, attractive hardcover edition.

"It is a book that is easy to hold in your hand while your mind leaves each page to soar through the far reaches of your imagination."—The SandPaper, Long Beach Island 8/21/00

Editorial Reviews

Steve Rogers
Gingras isn't just writing and painting about the sand, the sun and surf. She's commenting on the waves that crash on the shores of our conscience, the storms that pass over the reefs in our minds and destroy the sand castles of our imagination.
