Happy 2015, Year of “No Mud, No Lotus”

“No mud, no lotus”

This is my mantra as I write this new novel, continue sharing THE ART OF FLOATING, and shift into 2015.

The necklace is a Christmas gift from my hubs. The wisdom on writing (& life) comes from Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk I’ve been following for years.

Happy New Year, all!

No Mud No Lotus

Love seeing THE ART OF FLOATING on the shelf in Barnes & Noble in North Carolina! (If you spot it in a bookstore near you, please send a photo to kristin[@]kristinbairokeeffe[dot]com. I’ll post it here!)
