A near-fatal car crash served as a wake-up call for Jane Christmas, then an editor at The National Post , a twice-divorced single mother of three, and a long-distance commuter. Her reports from the island on Lake Erie were first published as a series in the Post. Christmas offers up a good list of further readings on such subjects as intuitive medicine and the new simplicity movement, but she ignores the nuances of her own supposedly transformative journey. Readers glide along the surface of events, occasionally sensing the unfolding depths just below, but the narrative quickly retreats back to the safety of the shallow end. The search for deeper sense of self is too often reduced to boomer-inspired life management concept. But there is no real transormative learning here.
What happens when an exhausted single working mother leaves her life of hour grocery stores, hour work days, three-hour commutes, and retreats to a tiny Canadian island? Does the absence of a pedal-to-the-metal schedule freak her out, or does it transform her from den mother to Zen mother? Like millions of others, Jane Christmas had a punishing agenda of work, domestic, and parenting duties. Weekdays were an urban triathlon, weekends evaporated into mile-long to-do lists. It was a draining cycle, and Jane found herself living beyond her means emotionally, physically, and financially.
The day that Jane Christmas was in a car crash, her world changed. Luckily, she was unhurt, but the near-death experience left her with a strong conviction: this was a wake-up call. As a long-time and devoted resident of Toronto, Jane was used to her fast-paced modern life as a single mother and writer for the National Post. But after the accident, Jane began to wonder if there may be more to life than all that hustle and bustle. She talked her employer at the Post into letting her take a summer sabbatical, promising to write a series for the newspaper describing her experiences.
