What I’m Reading Wednesday: Long Quiet Highway by Natalie Goldberg
Goldberg wrote books about helping writers defeat writer’s block, often through simple yet exciting prompts. My Goldberg books have post-it tentacles because I mark exercises I find interesting, and that’s almost the entire book.
This is why I’m delighted to find this Goldberg book in Booksale, for only Php25, filled with post-its of various colors (predominantly gray and yellow—have you ever seen gray post-its before?) used by the previous owner as markers. Since I’m a post-it and ephemera fan, consider me ecstatic. How serendipitous is our post-it connection?
At the back is a curious summary: “a journey of awakening from the profound sleep of a suburban childhood”, which instantly brings “memoir” and “spiritual journey” to mind, so this seems pretty awesome to me.
Also at the back, a memorable quote from inside, I presume: “Every moment is enormous, and it is all we have.”

I can’t get over how much fun the “free” gray post-its are, heh.
