The book: Higher Thoughts, Season Two โ€” Ready for the holidays ๐ŸŽ… ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿ“š

Big announcement, friendsโ€ฆ Higher Thoughts, the book (season two) is available for your holiday purchasing enjoyment!

Every year at about this time, I go back into the archive of the last year of this publication and hand-select my favorite posts to touch up and compile into a beautiful hardcover book. This year, Iโ€™ve chosen 58 entries (a steep increase from last yearโ€™s 41) along with a wide selection of carefully curated images to round out the ambiance.

This is my best work yet and Iโ€™m beyond thrilled to share it with you and yours.

The subtitle of โ€˜A written journey from the head to the heartโ€™ truly describes this last year for me. As you may know, this journey is a daunting one, indeed. Itโ€™s wrought with proverbial dragons that come in the form of doubts, insecurities, and fears. But when you arrive, you find youโ€™reโ€ฆ home.

Right now, I feel at home in my work. I donโ€™t feel like Iโ€™m searching anymore. Iโ€™ve found myself and in so doing, Iโ€™ve found you. How awesome is that?!

I owe this book largely to you, my readership. In taking your feedback to heart, Iโ€™ve found my place as a spiritual writer, teacher, and counselor (and have even enrolled in divinity school to become an interfaith minister ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ). Sharing my thoughts, stories, poems, and whimsical musings in Higher Thoughts has led me to be called to move across the country to help open a spiritual center with several people Iโ€™ve long deeply respected, including Rev. Mark Anthony Lord and Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith (among several others whoโ€™ve come to inspire me while working alongside).

This is the journey Iโ€™ve taken in the second year of this publication and itโ€™s the one Iโ€™ve written through in this book.
