Definitly considering this as an option now. I'd have to do mine of a landscape though.

Chet Raymo's Honey From Stone is a heart-warming collection of essays. By using the monastic hours as the framework for his essays Raymo gently reminds us of the sacred nature of the universe. The amount of science that informs his delight is impressive.

Penguin Books, 1989 - 188 sivua. Set in Ireland's Dingle Peninsula and presented as a modern Book of Hours, Honey From Stone is an internal dialogue, seeking the relevance of traditional religion in a world described by contemporary science. Raymo artfully weaves a poet's evocation of landscape with observations of astronomy, natural history, and spiritual lore.

Book by Raymo, Chet
In this book Chet Raymo elevates scientific knowledge to operatic beauty. This mixture of sacred and scientific is so well blended it produces an awe of the universe and brings us alive enough to appreciate it. Divisions between stars, humans, animals, rocks, sunsets disappear and we are united in this amazing life we share.
Chet Raymo's book beautifully reconciles the traditions of mysticism and science. In a form which follows the monastic hours, he uses the natural environment of the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland to discuss the wonder of the Universe. He makes it clear that the more we understand about how the Universe works, the more mysterious and wonderful it is. The prose is simple and clear.This is a graceful and heartening book. I highly recommend it
Chet Raymo's Honey From Stone is a heart-warming collection of essays. It shares deep and thoughtful ideas with the generous grace of a dear friend. By using the monastic hours as the framework for his essays Raymo gently reminds us of the sacred nature of the universe. By discussing the this universe through the awesome display of its skies he reminds us of the dramatic grandeur we are part of. And he uses the rocky Dingle Peninsula of Ireland to tell us that this awesome splendor, this grandeur and these miracles are right here beneath our feet. In his search for God, Raymo finds it revealed in the stones, the skies and the hedgehogs that delight and inspire his musings. The amount of science that informs his delight is impressive. He teaches geology, astronomy, history, botany and zoology on these rambles as easily as lying on great stones, watching a brilliant meteor shower silently illuminate the skies.
