Watts introduces the act of bird observation as a healing balm to many ailments, physical and emotional. By way of her own personal journey, she shares the way in which the simple observation of a warbler through a kitchen window can help us to set aside the stress of life, our physical or emotional pain, and just be in the moment with a thing of beauty most profound.
Part memoir, part beginner's guide, Keep Looking Up is filled with reflections on Watts' personal experiences, and with tips and prompts for encouraging our own healing through observing birds in the wild, and from the view of our own kitchen windows.
She illustrates that no matter who you are, what you look like, or where you live, finding peace and healing through a connection with birds is a universal possibility. It's a lovely read as well.
