Once Again the Wonder
A journal of the extraordinary moments of grace and wonder in ordinary daily life
Over the course of a decade at century’s end, Richard Quinney kept close watch and recorded in his journal the events of daily living. Any sense of the universal and the extraordinary was necessarily grounded in ordinary experience. The author lived in a prairie town in northern Illinois, within easy driving distance of his family farm, as he made the observations and wrote these personal essays exploring the experience of the sublime in everyday life.
Richard Quinney is the author of several books that combine autobiographical writing and photography, including Journey to a Far Place, For the Time Being, Borderland, and Where Yet the Sweet Birds Sing. His other books are in the academic field of sociology. He lives in Madison, Wisconsin, and on the family farm in Walworth County in southern Wisconsin.
