Author Carol Wiseman asked people around the country to send her descriptions of their favorite comforts. The result is A Patchwork of Comforts, a collection of comforting and comfortable things to soothe body, mind, and spirit. Comforts are organized alphabetically--and Wiseman adds sidebars with bits of trivia, and even comforting recipes, such as a recipe for Zabaglione, a dessert sauce.
A-to-Z comforts include:
Alone Time: The only voice you hear is your own
Aromas: Trigger memories
Brainrest: A chance to recoup and regroup
Crosswords: The right word satisfies
Cuddling: Back to the womb
Daydreams: Going to the movies free
Dogs: Part of the family Water: Watch it, hear it, drink it, play in it
X-tra Time: Ditching the clock lets you finish...whatever
Young at Heart: Keeps you in the loop
ZZZ's: Renews and reactivates

There are plenty of comforting activities to take the sting out of even the worst days: sitting by a fire after a long walk in the cold; watching birds in the back yard; enjoying a big cup of homemade hot chocolate; bathing by candlelight; a weekend camping trip--with no electronic appliances.A Patchwork of Comforts is a homecoming in a book--welcoming, warm, and wise.
A book written especially for "one of those days," dipping into A Patchwork of Comforts is like a long soak in a hot tub.

Carol and her husband live on a wooded island in the Pacific Northwest.... but the slower pace of life here is nothing new. She and her family had long ago escaped the cement, chaos, and car fumes of San Francisco suburbia. Twenty-five years of introspection, two return engagements to college, community involvement, and a variety of human service jobs fostered her passion for human behavior.
