Donna Eder recounts a year of darkness in her life during which she faced physical illness, times of uncertainty and doubt, and the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Using metaphors from a poem by Wendell Berry, she seeks to bring a deeper understanding to the darker phases of our spiritual journeys. Through the spiritual guides and dreams that provided invaluable support during this time, she learned the importance of being receptive and of living out her own unique retirement rather than trying to conform to the social norms around her. Discussion questions are included.
