Nicholas Hoult (sigh) is the guy I...

Dear Future Client:



There’s a nasty rumor that I’m a mean woman.While it’s true I’m probably not nice most times, I don’t think of it as being mean. I think of it as being real.

Mark Nepo Mark Nepo's blog:

Receiving depends on gentleness, which relaxes our boundaries. It lets us interact with what comes our way. It lets us lend some of our shape to what’s before us. Lending our shape in this way allows for a momentary joining, through which we can feel the aliveness that flows between things. Here...

Recently I said that THE THOUSAND NAMES by Django Wexler is a bit gritty, but less so than Scott Lynch’s books; and a bit dark, but less so than Brent Weeks’ books.
