From the introduction by by David G. Lanoue:
Who is the Issa that Issa presents in his writing? He's a discoverer of the universe, gratefully attending to the small daily miracles that too many of us, in our rush to be somewhere else, miss. He lives in the here and now with heart and hands open to receive the Buddha's gifts. He shows us a way to live.
