A quick note to say that I'm leaving for my 3 week residency at Sangam House tonight. Putting together a manuscript of my first book sounded wonderful in proposal form and is complete unnerving now, but 3 weeks is a long time — I hope to have exciting news at the other end!
Wonderful news — the Earth Charter Global Oneness Project's book "Moments that Speak: Stories and Images of Connection" is finally out! (Actually, it came out at the Rio +20 summit in June, but I just found out and got my copy!)
The book is gorgeous, such a lovely publication, and I'm so honored that my story "I can bear it" sits alongside Wangari Maathai's "Roots" in the section "At home on earth."
That's a good description of how I feel right now — at home on earth :)
Here's a link to the book's publishers, but it's also available on Amazon — pick yourself up a copy!
My lyric essay about the Tabo monastery, which you can find further down on this blog too, was featured on the India Untraveled blog. Here's a link to the post on their blog -- stop by there, then hang around to read the rest of their blog, if you're interested in off-the-beaten-track travel in India! :)
