A teacher-poet, William Yager uses the metaphor of "traveling through" to symbolize our life39;s journey, suffused by innumerable unique and individual encounters and experiences, some with other people, some with Nature, some with the spirit of God. In his first book1, Dr. Yager suggested that we may all need a Wayside, a place or state of mind, where we can stop and take a reflective breath. In Traveling Through, he explores at a deep, intuitive level our encounters with Nature, the extravagant spirit of God, the culture surrounding us, and the counter-cultural essence of the authentic Gospel of Jesus.
