After forty-seven years on Wall Street, Williams writes from home about what truly matters.
Sydney Williams has compiled a medley of essays that reflect on the precious moments of life spent in contemplation, away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday grind. They include time spent in nature, with friends and family, or reflecting on our nation’s current affairs. Within his essays there is an inspiring appreciation of the art of savoring life rather than careening through it, unaware of our surroundings and ourselves.
Sydney Williams, formerly of Smith’s Neck in Old Lyme and now of Essex, gives us an engaging and thoughtful autobiography and personal peregrination, in fits and starts (brief essays). . . It is, as he calls it, “a memory of mindfulness” stimulated by “time to think,” a great asset of old age!
Sydney Williams lives in Old Lyme, Connecticut. He graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1965, and for the last forty-seven years worked on Wall Street. He writes the blog “Thought of the Day” and is author of One Man’s Family: Growing up in Peterborough and Other Stories.
