Lost and Found: Embracing the Whole of Life

From birth on, we lose and gain—often simultaneously:
“I’ve lost my way; but made three new friends who offered directions.”
“I lost 20 pounds; I’ve gained a whole new wardrobe.”

The essays and poems of seventy-one of our members sparkle and shine in this collection of personal essays about the gains and losses of life.
