Diane Orton was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1935. Physically, she is now an old woman, but her life-long interest in ’the big questions’ has never waned, and her desire to be of service to others is still strong. Two years ago she wrote and published a personal memoir, Just an Ordinary Person. Now she has written for a wider audience, with a book that offers a positive and interesting perspective of the major changes taking place on our planet and suggests simple steps each one of us can take to benefit ourselves and others and help create the future we’d like to see.After an optimistic and insightful opening chapter, the reader is invited to look at what they are experiencing through their senses-in chapters focusing on sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and extra-sensory perception. This is likened to a Marie Kondo process of examining everything, category by category, noting what ‘sparks joy’ and discarding (where possible) what doesn’t. Towards the end of the book there’s a chapter on recent world events-the author’s chronicle of the COVID pandemic and its consequences, along with mention of some of the political changes and natural disasters of the year 2022. The ending is an invitation to look at the world through fresh eyes.
