Page after page in this heartfelt book you'll find the magic in the ordinary that will uplift your spirit and brighten your day. We hope it will illumine your path and help you rediscover the strength and courage that is already inside you.


Conceived nearly 20 years ago by Donna Marie Bailey and "sister" friend Charlotte Noyes, this book was a dream of creating a helpful, inspiring, practical, and yet spiritual collection of insightful, humor-laden writings, both original and selected, coupled with breath- and heart-taking photographs. Begun prior to COVID and prior to Bailey's cancer diagnosis in 2020, this book takes you on a journey that becomes your own in many ways. Because we are living in challenging times, with so many unknowns, worry and stress can feel overwhelming at times. The reason for this book was and is a response to this and hopefully provides perspectives and answers you may not have thought of. We hope you like our debut book as you gaze outside and inside your own window.

About the author
Donna remembered that she was is a writer just after the loss of her beloved grandfather. She recalls the cursor light on her first personal computer blinking, as if calling her. Her fingers moved effortlessly as she composed a poem in his honor. The writer had returned. Since then, Donna has lived in many places—Maine, San Francisco, North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains ( her birthplace), and most recently, Illinois. Her professional life took many shapes, but with the same intent… .to help people find what brings them joy in work, nature, and relationships. She founded Donna's Big Red Chair in 2010 and works as a life coach.
