~
Publisher:  Atria Books / Simon Schuster
Published: November 2013

Following host Gilion's prompt at Rose City Reader, 
here's the beginning to WRITING TO WAKE THE SOUL by Karen Hering
~

What
  Is the
                    Root of all these
     Words?
                   One thing: love.
                                    --Hafiz
"The human gift of language is born of the desire to connect, to share our experience with each other. Our words are bridges built between one person and the next while also crossing time, from the moment they are written down to the moment they are lifted from the page by a reader."

*
The end of the above sentence really captures my imagination,
as does the book's title.
I anticipate a great long weekend of reading
with this book a prime part.
Further to anyone with interest, an extended excerpt posted HERE
and a shorter post , interestingly, on Beginnings HERE

Karen Hering's back cover quote I find inspiring ~

"Begin writing whenever you are ready and
follow wherever it leads."

Have a great weekend!
