A man encounters a painting for sale in a small town in British Columbia. He decides he cannot live without it, no matter what the cost. He buys it, and for the rest of his life the painting accompanies him, guides him, lives within him. The man is Donald Grayston, pilgrim, priest, and teacher and this is the story of his unfolding spiritual journey over a period of fifty years. The painting is an emblem of the quest for wisdom that lay at the heart of the story, but it is the story itself, told with honesty, compassion and humour that will draw the readers in. What does it mean to open yourself, deeply and honestly to your own life? what does it mean to seek and respond to the presence of Spirit in your life? Can you open yourself to the call to love, in spite of all he fears and hesitations that hold you back? These and other questions - his own but also ours - animate this beautiful, soulful memoir.
