The question at the heart of The Bright Hour is this: What makes for a meaningful life when your time is limited? It is an extraordinary individual who can see and illuminate for us the radiance and joy to be found in the seemingly mundane moments that fill our lives with meaning. Nina Riggs’ poetic eye, and soul, gifts us over and over again with word pictures that not only dazzle, but that enrich our spirits.
What if, like Nina Riggs, we were to live the answer to that question every day? Isn't that the key to loving our days and living with fullness of life?
The Bright Hour is the most important book I have read this year. Having recently lost a good friend to cancer, I found this memoir to be a poignant way to reflect on how Susan also lived her life with great meaning and purpose. It can be healing in many ways to read a book that celebrates a life force that is not diminished by death. I highly recommend this book.
