With sensitivity and humor, Moore explores the unexpected lessons learned in the strange but rich monasticism of forgotten men—a brotherhood housed in crumbling medieval masonry and, one shared in the dangerous rocky depths of the gold mine.
This engaging adventure of discovery is full of unexpected surprises, leaving the reader torn between the call to adventure that lives at the heart of human nature and the gratitude for the safe embrace of the easy chair that affords the luxury of living vicariously.
In reading the writers time in the monastery it sends an important message that everyone needs peace and solace to recharge and be the best you can be, reflection and recollection are important to learn and move on from the mistakes we make.
The second part of the authors journey takes us to Canada and a gold mine were the mindset and characteristics of the workers have a different objective. This, for me, is what makes the journey and memoirs of this writer an excellent read.
There is alot to take from this book, contemplation, reflection, and making you think about your own life and what you hold dear to yourself and treasure.
