Haiku with guts, February 18, 2010
By Mary E. Davies (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews
This is haiku with guts. I love, "A haiku takes us down to the bones of a moment." And "...when it comes to learning something new, cluelessness turns out to be the perfect and only place to start." I like it that this is a book to READ, not just a bunch of instructions. It's the spiritual equivalent of From Julia Child's Kitchen, where you not only get the bread recipe, you travel to the bakeries in Nice and experience the 300 days of experimental baking. I love McGee's image of a first kiss in puffy parkas on a Midwest winter night.
And I put the book to work, as you can read about at http://marysreallife.blogspot.com/2009/11/sunday-in-seattle-with-haiku.html.
And it's going to be the book I use this year for a Lenten practice. Highly recommended.
