The Happiest Man on Earth..

The Happiest Man on Earth by Eddie Jaku

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An amazing heart felt story that makes you stop and re-examine your own life. Ask yourself – what do you really have to complain about? From such hardship has grown such an appreciation of life, I fear I am letting Eddie down in those moments when I fail to smile, to notice the little things that create awe in our simple minds. Thanks to Eddie Jaku I stopped to watch the flowers bloom this spring.

Writing Begins with the Breath..

Writing Begins with the Breath by Laraine Herring.

I have just been introduced to Laraine Herring and her wonderful book on writing, ‘Writing Begins with the Breath‘.   It is one of my new go to books for blending body health with the practice of writing.  Her authentic style and mastery of the topic comes across on every page.  It is a lovely read, and left me feeling better for having taking it in.

“Writing Begins with the Breath will open up a whole world of creativity for people who may not have considered themselves writers before, while also providing keen insights into the craft for seasoned writers.”

I have put my highlighted, sticky noted, pencil drawn copy next to Stephen King’s On Writing, and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic on my desk.   Laraine Herring took me on a journey that will deepen my prose and allow me to move further into each story I tell.

I will read it again soon, like a treasured classic I will take pleasure in absorbing myself in her wisdom again.

Thank you Laraine.
