This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen
This Is Not My Hat

Geri Larkin, January 12, 2013

Klassen is responsible for my rediscovery of children's books (for me!) at the ripe old age of 62. Not only are his hat books hilarious but they are gorgeous, timeless and surprisingly moving. I'm already clearing out space for his next project.

If You're Lucky, Your Heart Will Break: Field Notes from a Zen Life by James Ishmael Ford
If You're Lucky, Your Heart Will Break: Field Notes from a Zen Life

Geri Larkin, September 1, 2012

I save the softest part of my heart for truth tellers -- not the people who shout from the rooftops necessarily -- but those among us who quietly and steadfastly stand in the face of harm and say, "That's not true". James Ford is a truth teller. He tells the truth about Zen - that it isn't anything special, true, but it can change a life nevertheless. This is a book with stories about his own spiritual path with its ups and downs, heartbreaks and joys.

He has written one of those books you'll want read and keep so you'll have it to pull off of a bookshelf on a stormy night when your mind is consumed with, "What was I thinking?!" James will talk you down and witness your starting all over again. And again. Oh, and again.
