The journey to wholeness does not have to involve a long sojourn on the road. It can begin in our home amidst the objects of our lives. That is the view of David Appelbaum, a philosopher at State University of New York College at New Paltz. In this 1993 paperback, he bypasses elevated, extraordinary experiences and focuses instead on the metaphysical meanings of keys, the wash, ladders, bowls, money, and much more. Here keeping a home is a way of keeping watch upon self, thought, and imagination.
