Slowly a time that was touched by blessing and meaning is brought to life again; it has a wingspan and wants to be shared

Sometimes memories return like small caresses, or little feather touches from the past. We smile, remember, savor, and perhaps even wince a bit. Then the memories fade and are forgotten. But if the feather touches persist, there is a story that wants to take wing. The recollections accumulate and gather substance.


Praise for Gunilla Norris "Gunilla Norris brings a new awareness of the sacred nature of all life." —Anne Bancroft, author of Weavers of Wisdom "Gunilla Norris' simple precepts for meditating and living have a translucent quality. We can all benefit greatly by observing them." —Thich Nhat Hanh "I was almost breathless with wonder at the beauty of Gunilla Norris' words—so simple and yet so profound..." —Bishop Desmond M. Tutu "Gunilla Norris's remarkable reflections on friendship inspire and guide us to the deep place where we can 'see the stars in one another.' A marvelous book to gift the friends who sustain and enrich our lives." —Joyce Rupp, award-winning author "Here, Norris brings her poetic prose and deep wisdom for finding the holy within the human to a high view of friendship where Spirit works within us to foster the spacious, healing companionship of compassion that connects us to all of life; within, between, and beyond." —Greg Johanson, Ph.D. co-author of Grace Unfolding: Psychotherapy in the Spirit of the Tao-te ching "Along comes Gunilla Norris to reaffirm the possibility of writing prayers about real life in today's world." —Rabbi Harold S. Kushner

Author Biography

Gunilla Norris' parents were world travelers in the Swedish diplomatic corps and so she grew up essentially in three places: Argentina, Sweden and the United States. As a child she was given a rich exposure to different languages and cultures. She received her B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College and her M.S. from Bridgeport University in the field of human development. She is a mother and a grandmother. She has been a psychotherapist in private practice for more than thirty years and has felt privileged to accompany many people on their journeys to growth and healing. Her special love has been teaching meditation and leading contemplative workshops of many kinds. As a writer Gunilla has published eleven children's books, one book of poetry and six books on spirituality including: Being Home, Becoming Bread, Inviting Silence, A Mystic Garden, Simple Ways and Sheltered in the Heart.
