A journey is a most apropos occasion for a blessing, both because of the excitement inherent in travel and the human separation involved. At the moment of parting we wish to speak wisely and concisely and as this is often difficult to achieve, our Travel Blessing is a useful gift. Mr. Poltarnees' text embodies his long meditated advice, such as "travel lightly - carrying neither weighty luggage nor burdensome preconceptions," and "Let the map inspire you, and the road whisper your next destination." As with all the books in this series every page is illustrated in full color, with images that deepen the impact of the words.

About the Author
WELLERAN POLTARNEES has a lifelong love of gardens. His first memory is falling out of his baby carriage and landing on a bed of odorous white flowers which not only kept him from injury, but made the experience a sensual delight. He collects books about, and pictures of, gardens but there are few timeless things that he does not so honor. He uses a book called Great Gardens of the World as a guide whenever he travels, and, with the exception of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, which came highly recommended and which he found monotonous the gardens have always refreshed him. His favorite time for gardens is night. His favorite garden music is Manuel De Falla's "Nights in the Gardens of Spain", and his favorite garden poem is "The Garden" by Andrew Marvell.
