This mention represents a disproportionately wide reach for a small book about small things from a small place. I look forward to finding out that even in the bigger burgs and busier burbs, there’s still a receptive heart for words about places that are slow. And quiet. But not ordinary!
From the unpredictable alchemy of connection between new readers and the story of Slow Road Home, this writer’s journey has taken much of its energy, enthusiasm and joy. You just never know what new friends, places and opportunities to share will open up, even from the least threads of synapse. And this is no small thread.
The summer, until late August, is open for book travel and talk. I’m hoping I’ll become plesantly “booked” and that this web of conversation with the words of the book and the photo-images will continue to grow and blossom.
