excerpt from Ch. 7, P. 195
Books have a regal lineage, full of power. I notice words and wonder where they come from. I turn them over in my mind and feel their magic, how they shape incantations and recount stories of being human. What books do I like? someone asks. There is that page with the fly in Zen Mind Beginner's Mind and John Cage's book Silence, and how it provides cool refreshment after those dry books of my college days.
