Lisa Ray Instagram - Talking from stillness has been both disorienting and natural, like observing the way fall grasps at the edges of leaves and creeps into socks and bed covers until one day you wake up to snowfall. My family and I decided to spend a sabbatical year at our home in the mountains of B.C. to remind ourselves what it feels like to breathe and speak slower. To eat a muffin at the local coffee shop and taste every morsel. To live apart from devices and the noisy world. To see my girls muddied and uninhibited by strict social protocols that define the way a toddler must laugh and express. To connect to silence, which I hope will support my creativity as I write the next book. This is almost the end of week two of our quarantine. It’s also week one of (virtual) interviews in Canada for the release of #ClosetotheBone by @penguinrandomca on November 3rd. Promotions began on Oct 22nd the auspicious date of Saptami and I hear November 3rd is an important day for American friends. Never a better time to reflect, read and protect our inner and outer expansion from forces that contract. I am giddy and nervous for the book’s reception in Canada, it being a narrative uniquely informed by the privileges of what it means to be born Canadian. It seems, from early conversations, the words have landed well, which is the humble, genuine wish of most writers. Order your copy @amazoncan @indigo and of course your local bookstore @penguinrandomca @jayapriyavasudevan
