Writing Down the Bones

“I had a belief in something real below the surface of life or right in the middle of life, but often my own mind kept me asleep or diverted, yet my own mind were also all I had. So I began writing out of them. […] Yet is it good to know about our terrible selves, not laud or criticise them, just acknowledge them. Then, out of this knowledge, we are better equipped to make a choice for beauty, kind consideration, and clear truth. We make this choice with our feet firmly on the ground. We are not running wildly after beauty with fear at our backs”
– Natalie Goldberg.
This book is really something quite special.
