Re-enchantment book may help the literal-minded

In a letter to the editor of The Weekly Calistogan (The Napa Valley Register) today, Donald Williams praises Thomas Moore's book, The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life: "Recommending Moore’s Re-Enchantment". Williams states, "... I have read Re-Enchantment at least three times, starting four years ago. It is a convincing tonic for someone like me who can be too linear, logical, mathematical, or businesslike in my thinking."

In his letter, Williams includes, "Moore offers a wonderful perspective that’s magical and practical at the same time. He escorts the reader beyond excessive rationality to the real enchanting place where beauty, dreams, and emotion are validated, even in daily life at work, in the garden, in the home."
