When I write a book of this scope I spend years of my life living it: not only creating it, but I meditate on it, dream about it, try many versions of every paragraph, every page. It is a broad and deep commitment. Made from a place of intense  passion, caring, and compassion. And it sustains me through the inevitable gridlocks, fuels me when I’m tired, and sustains my Soul and Spirit through the entire journey. For me, it comes from a lifelong commitment to Beauty.

In this week’s brief interview I discuss why I wrote the book. (And a little bit of “how.”)

Each post will give you more of the book itself and insight into my process. Enjoy!
