Themes addressed on the pages through the photographs and quotations include acceptance; personal growth through change; self-esteem and being comfortable with the person you are; seeing purpose and meaning in life; the essence of what it means to be human and how that essence is manifested ahd shared by all; and the inter-connectedness of the human race, over time and across geography. Pages are organized into monthly chapters, with the date notated at the top of each page. Each month's chapter is introduced with a title page featuring a quote that encapsulates the month's focus.
