"The Beauty of Listening" - A New Poetry Collection with a Listening Theme

July 10, 2013 12:21 PM | Linda Eve Diamond

Hello listening friends!

I’m excited to share the new release of my listening-themed poetry book, THE BEAUTY OF LISTENING. This collection explores and honors the ever-challenging art and skill of listening.

Several great writers, readers and listeners have given the book an early read and enthusiastic endorsements, including ILA's Lyman K. "Manny" Steil, Alan R. Ehrlich, Jerry Catt-Oliason, Margarete Imhof and Kay Lindahl.  (To see book endorsements, click here.)  

Excerpts from the book description:  Inside these pages, you’ll meet paper dolls and monsters, writers at work and words at play, and you’ll find many open questions of perspective...  While each poem tells its own story, the collection also tells a larger listening story.  From thoughts on where listening begins to the evolution of words and communication styles, the story leads into the deep need for listening time, both inner and interpersonal. Inner listening is explored from intuition to where inner and interpersonal listening entwine, making self-awareness essential for truly listening to others.”

THE BEAUTY OF LISTENING is available through Amazon and other major online booksellers.

Thanks for listening, friends.  :)
