Book Summary

"We humans are a minority of giants, stumbling around in the world of little things" Sue Bell rights in this marvelous new book. Each one of those little things has a complicated and special way of getting on in the world, different from ours and different from one another's.  In Waiting for Aphrodite she explores the ways of sponges and sea urchins, millipedes and earthworms, horseshoe crabs in the sea Mouse known as Aphrodite-- as well as our ways.  She takes us on a journey through the mysteries of time-- geological, biological, and personal as she writes of the evolution of life on this planet and the evolution of her own life her childhood next to a Michigan graveyard the three colleges where she learned three things her 25 years on a 90 Acre Farm in the Ozarks, where she kept bees and wrote her classic book A Country Year; the move from the Ozarks to a strange little house in a Maine town "that was a Yankee version of what my Missouri Town had been when I first moved there, before Walmart and McDonalds". She had chosen the Maine town as the place she wanted to grow old in, but in its tide pools in ocean water she discovered A Whole New World, the world of little things that inspired this book.
