Teaser Tuesdays reprise: The Mindful Writer by Dinty W. Moore

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat.


mindful writerI know, I know: we just had a teaser from this book last week. I couldn’t help myself. Anyway, these are not Dinty Moore’s words, precisely. They are words chosen by him.

If you are a poet, you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in (every) sheet of paper. Without a cloud, there will be no rain; without rain, the trees cannot grow; and without trees, we cannot make paper. The cloud is essential for the paper to exist.

From Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh, as quoted by The Mindful Writer, in suggesting mindfulness and the awareness of connections, seeing past the surface of things. And a lovely image & concept to keep in mind, I think.

This quotation comes from an uncorrected advance proof and is subject to change.
