Lately, I’m reading a new book, Finding Beauty in a Broken World, by Terry Tempest Williams, a mosaic written in lovely “tesserae.” Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hearing Ms. Williams share from new – unpublished – writings in Denver, Colorado. Ms. Williams recently embarked on a fresh healing journey.
After the reading, she told me two things which deeply touched my heart: (1) Santa Ana is beautiful, and (2) she always wanted to be a poet.
