I couldn’t resist this intriguing title when Ben contacted me about it. I mean, what does Buddha have for breakfast every morning? Are we talking about THE Buddha or something else entirely? This book is written by someone who has been there, done it and got a metaphorical tee-shirt to prove it. Meet Ben Stevens, the author and a working member of the community at ‘Daionji’ (the name of the temple in Nagasaki City).
In this week’s Thursday Throng we have a self-confessed ‘thinker’ in our midst. His books so far explore the creative process, philosophy and creative productivity. He also offers a time management programme called Bending Time, which explores the relationship between time and consciousness. Finally, he’s offering one lucky commenter the chance to win a copy of his book, This We Know which sets out to explore two simple questions. What do we really know? And what don’t we know?
This week I’d like to introduce you all to Steven Harz who anthology of stories and poetry, Stories You Can’t Dance To, is featured in the review. When I visited his website I found the following quotes at the top of his About Me page: “If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story” – Orson Welles “Or where you begin it” – Steven Harz. Having read the stories and poems I believe this sums him up wonderfully.
One lucky commenter will also win a PDF copy of Songs You Can’t Dance To. All you need to do is leave a comment for Steven at the end of this post.
