What People are Saying About This

Chris Highland

L.M.Browning's rich little book invites the reader to face our common "fear [of] the silence" and take a courageous breath. Her Fleeting Moments may not always bring a contented clarity, yet presents an open journal of a journey within, to fiercely face that silence, and dare to walk beyond it into deeper woods where we can embrace some kind of natural sacredness. This is a celebration through suffering, a seeking beyond the search, and a pathway into a welcome unknown. At times the prose itself becomes poetry, and there are delightful glimmers of the New England life many of us only dream of. One imagines Emerson and Fuller including gifts from this book in The Dial.

—Chris Highland (author of Meditations of Henry David Thoreau and My Address is a River)

Frank Owen

This generation's New England Transcendentalist.

— Frank Owen (creator of Bodhiyatra Poetry)

Keith M. Cowley

As a New England native, L.M. Browning and I share an environmental relationship. She speaks to the seeker in me, the young boy scouring the woodlands for the answers I already have, for the validation of simply "being". Courageous, she reveals a well-worn path of redirection and self-evaluation leading us toward a resonant verbiage that dissipates just as profoundly as it arrives. Inside us lies the cure and the curiosity, and Browning empowers us to recover our own composition and reconstitute it boldly into our realities. Between her own emboldened poetic lines beats the heart-mind of an awakened seeker, re-awakening daily as invitation to share this Journey together, one page at a time. Fleeting Moments will only inspire.

— Keith M. Cowley (author of Presence and Environmental Connection)

Philip F. Gura

Thoreau, that great New England saunterer who serves as one of the inspirations for L. M. Browning's new book, advised never to underestimate the value of a fact, for it one day might flower into a truth. Facts flowering into truths are what one finds on every page herein. Browning's gift is to see the miraculous in the commonplace, and readers will leave her poems and journal entries the wiser and more human. This is no small gift.

— Philip F. Gura (author of American Transcendentalism: A History)
