In this volume of poems, walking develops as a metaphor for living in and experiencing the world. Through the immersion in the rhythms of the year, the changing of the seasons becomes a metaphor for the changes of life, children, marriage, work, and aging. This collection chronicles walks taken in Santa Cruz, and Eugene during 2012 and 2013 by the author, a high risk obstetrician and his wife, a cancer surgeon, and contrasts the challenges of their medical practices with the events in the world.

The walker's pace leads to reflections of life that are usually lost: the joy of kicking fall leaf piles, the smile on a kindergartner's face with her first bag of school valentines, the dusty forgotten glass sign in front of Santa Cruz High School wishing everyone a good summer vacation and reminding the students of the first day of school, the death of a premature baby on the day of the planetary alignment, the brave resolution of a dying cancer patient with her distraught 40 year old sons. The drought, the fires, marriage, graduation, and the song of summer sprinklers are the notes in these celebratory songs of the rhythms of the year.
