I wish I remembered the first moment nature and I linked arms for good. Made eye contact and realized Yes, this is it! But the relationships that mean the most are rarely that simple, rarely that spontaneous. More often, they develop over time, allowing you to get to know each other slowly and thoughtfully.
If you’ve been reading Random Acts of Writing for a while, you’ve witnessed that gradual unfolding as it’s happened for me over the past several years. From the beginning Junior Explorer days of identifying plants and creatures by their Latin names, to the first tentative attempts to connect the act of walking with meditation and something greater; from looking to others to explain what I was seeing, to letting my own writing narrate the experience instead.
I am, therefore, so excited to share with you — most especially you — the launch of my new book: LOOK UP! Musings on the Nature of Mindfulness. Within its pages you’ll find familiar essays and poems from Random Acts of Writing, 100 original, full-color photographs, and a sprinkling of quotations from some of my favorite philosophers, poets, naturalists, and writers.
It has been a pleasure to share this journey with all of you. Thank you for your support, your enthusiasm, and your friendship!
