Today is the official release date for Tamed by a Bear: Coming Home to Nature-Spirit-Self, from Counterpoint Press. The story I never thought would see the light of day has become a book! You can find more about the book here, or read the opening pages here.
It feels a little unreal—partly because I haven’t held the finished book in my hands yet and partly because the process of making a book is itself a miracle. One moment there is nothing. A moment later, a book. All you artists and creators—every one of you, that is—know what I mean.
I’m celebrating in the usual, daily ways—walking in the national forest just up the street from my house. Doing a few of the many small pieces of promotional work. And especially sniffing the air and enjoying a little leftover moisture from our first big monsoon rain of the season yesterday evening.
