Inspirational writings from a journey to happiness.
In her third collection of poems, Kat celebrates the process of personal growth and the enduring center of joy within. Stumbling Toward Happiness is a journal of inner travel that honors the raw, rewarding, and sometimes magical surrender to the path of spiritual inquiry. The book's 111 prose-poetry pieces combine a lyrical paragraph with a haiku or tanka that expands its meaning. The book is divided into nine chapters. Themes include connectedness and compassion, the gifts of imperfection, radical forgiveness, the search for happiness and healing, a return to simple abundance, re-awakening to wonder, and the rediscovery of beauty in our lives. Reminiscent of the reflections of Mark Nepo and Mary Oliver, Stumbling Toward Happiness takes readers through a journey of deep soul-searching. These field notes will resonate with every reader as they reflect on their own source of inner wisdom and joy. Stumbling Toward Happiness includes new poems as well as poems published by literary journals and programs, including Rattle, Frogpond, Modern Haiku, The Heron's Nest, tinywords, Blithe Spirit, and NHK-Japan Haiku Masters. Notes on this elegant Japanese poetic genre are included.
