Ahhh! It’s so terrifying to post this on the internet. But it is the truth.
I am writing a book!
This all came about because, as many of you know, for two years I wrote a 108 poems in the fall to raise money for the Young Adult Program at Yasodhara Ashram, which means I have over 200 poems written on all different kinds of topics.
So the original idea was, take the best of the best, jam pack ’em all together and voila! A new book!
But then I realized it would probably end up like every other random poetry anthology, unread and unloved.
And so I had to ask what do I really want? And what do I really want to write about? What is important to me?
And I realized that a ton of my writing and my poetry is about finding courage.
And so I am writing a book on courage.
At first I thought it would be a would be about poems for courage but then realized what I really wanted to write is my story about finding courage.
It’s going to start with when my life fell apart and I quit my job and how in the process of putting my life back together I found myself.
It’s terrifying to say out loud, but it’s true.
I am writing a book on courage.
Want to be the first to hear about it?
Have a great week,
