Radical Joy for Hard Times

Jul 22, 2013-- Have you ever loved a place that isn't there anymore? Maybe you had an unkempt field made for exploring, or a patch of woods that was as familiar as your front door and then a fire, flood or bulldozers wiped it away.

"Very often people will react to places that are burned or mined or somehow damaged," says Johnson, "and it will trigger something in their own psyches that has been damaged and needs to be repaired, needs to be healed.
