Some things are as steady as mountains; others, like the ocean, are unpredictable, forever in motion. Rocking the Ages travels between the worlds of continuity and change, exploring the challenges presented by coming of age and growing old, seeking the Divine in traditional and nontraditional ways, reaching across generational lines, and examining the past to understand the present. Throughout, the sense of human connection is swaddled in the dual-layered fabric of permanence and flux.

This collection of literary wisdom may rock some perceptions as it attempts to find the sacred in everyday life, but it will surely delight and inspire. Among the contributors are Robert Bly and Pat Schneider.
