Banyen's Description: 

This book can be anything you want it to be—a place to record a special moment in your own words or images, a journal of memories, a perpetual record of birthdays, anniversaries, and other milestones of family and friends, or even simply a book of poetry and inspiration.

Gunilla Norris invites you to save and savor the lyrical moments in life by writing them down in the pages of this elegant, artfully designed memory book/journal, with designated spaces provided for each day of the year. On the Wing features Norris's haikus, poems, and inspirational quotes, and each month showcases one of Toinette Lippe’s beautiful hummingbird paintings—as well as a delicate flower painting at the end of each month. The hummingbirds evoke the sense of a lyrical moment: stationary but alive, hovering, humming with meaning and wonder.

To mark any day is to become conscious of it, to know it as a gift. Each of us has just so many days on this earth. Lyrical moments of awareness can bring us to poignant experiences of animals, plants, people, weather, moving water, and the feelings they evoke in us. As the seasons return year by year, we evolve with them, becoming more fully ourselves.
 

This little book can be used for marking our special days, and also to remember the deep, sweet, ordinary ones. By recalling each day, we bring ourselves into greater belonging, into knowing that we are part of a luminous whole.

With stunning Chinese brush painted hummingbird and flower art adorning thoughtful, beautiful, evocative poetry, On the Wing is as beautiful as it is inspirational. As you fill it in over the years, this book will become a treasured keepsake filled with remembrances of life events and moments in time.
