Friends, I am getting closer to having a completed manuscript of my first book, Finding God in Ordinary Time. The process has been fascinating; I’ve been working with Peggy Moran, a gifted editor in New York, who has been helping me to make sure that every word counts, that my thoughts flow freely, and that no “insider” jargon jars the reader’s experience. On the other side of the country, Asha Hossein has designed a beautiful cover that I will post here as soon as it’s not a violation of any copyright. I head back to Vermont on August 22 to meet the judges for Pitch Week X. But meanwhile, this word cloud reveals the heart of the book. Enjoy!
