I was having a hard time getting into this book until Tsering read a selection from it for my class. After hearing her read her own poems and explaining how reliant they are on breathing techniques from her home in Tibet, I went back through her book and found a new appreciation for her work.

Thus far, it's been right next to my bed side-- the coveted spot. I've glanced through, and already excited to pick up on things I loved about the first collection: subtle gestures, delicate meditations, womanhood. Will keep you posted.
