We expect inspiration in sunsets, blooming flowers, and mountain-top views. And in turn we’ve come to not expect it elsewhere: in the tragic or mundane. This essay collection challenges this categorization of wonder, light, and beauty. Fourteen authors share their experiences of finding light in unexpected places. In a disaster, on a dreary morning commute. In squawking gulls, aging bodies, and seeing the way a friend signs his name. Wherever you are, whatever thoughts might be racing through your mind, light is available. It might be just around the corner.
