Blue Highways is is the kind of book that makes you proud to live in a country that still has open spaces and forgotten corners. The prose is sharp and its moral compass is even truer now than ever. It's a reminder to slow down. To unplug. To worry less about ETAs and more about being in a moment.
When wonder takes hold, the world feels different. There is clarity, and there is gratitude. Wonder is related to awe, but it’s not the same—awe makes us feel respect while wonder connects us to the hum of the universe.
