I just finished the next-to-last round of edits on this book. I started it in the beginning of 2016, which isn’t so terribly long ago. But it’s taken me a lot longer to finish than it probably should have.
It’s not a long book. Roughly 150 pages. With a pretty straightforward (albeit radical) premise:
We crave Unity and Connection, believing that Separation is an illusion.
The thing is, Separation and Distance are very much an in-built part of our lives, and we can’t reject them without rejecting our fundamental selves.
But if we look within at how our microscopic neurology handles separation we can learn some useful lessons on how to productively deal with Distance on a macroscopic scale.
Heady, perhaps. Yeah, that’s my thing. But it’s worth the effort in thought and consideration
Anyway, I’m pleased with how the book has wound up. The Conclusion is particularly satisfying for me. It just has a good feel. Complete. Wrapped up. Concluded — with an invitation for where we can go with this new understanding of ourselves.
Now I need to type up the handwritten edits, get the galley formatted properly, and forward review copies to my waiting readers (some of whom have been waiting patiently for months).
But first, lunch and a nap are in order.
And a shower 🙂
