Planted In Pennies

One of my all-time favorite quotes by writer Annie Dillard:

The Dhobi's Daughter

There are lots of things to see, unwrapped gifts and free surprises. The world is fairly studded and strewn with pennies cast broadside from a generous hand. If you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity, so that finding a penny will literally make your day, then, since the world is in fact planted in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days.

How wonderful and true this is.  The path of working on this book has been particularly penny-strewn. Pre-publication royalties from a cosmic Publisher.

    Awesome to know that you’re blogging 🙂
    Is Do Something Beautiful the name of the book?? 🙂

    I am sure the blogs will leave us well prepared to receive your much awaited book (create the right ‘Hava’ i.e. weather)

    On another note since the suggested name does not tell us about the book being about the eye care system, is the cover of the book going to lead us to ‘Light’?!
