We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

I Need a Good Book to Read

I have hit a reading wall and I need help. Lately I have been enamored by poetry and have been reading lots of nonfiction but can't find any fiction that I read all the way through. It's gotten to the point that I am about to pick up the Dark is Rising series or A Wrinkle in Time to fill the gap. Not that anything is wrong with either of those I've just read them so many times since I was a child that I practically can recite them.

I'm looking for something that I can really get entrenched in. I think the last books I read like that was "So Far From God" by Ana Castillo or "The History of Love" by Nichole Krauss.

So please leave me with favorites!

And a poem for the day

from Like Singing Coming Off the Drums

i ain't yo momma
but i am this lil mama
who knows how to burn.

It took me a while to get into The History of Love but I liked it. Try The Birthing House or Harvy and Eck which was very sweet. Both of those have what I'd call mamma energy in them. You might like the Time Travelers wife too. If you need more you can head to my blog and click on the books link and it takes you to my virtual library on library thing, if you want even more ideas. Can you tell I like to read too ;) ? I've done a few book reviews on my blog too. The Red Tent is good too.
