Talking to paper is talking to the divine. Paper is infinitely patient. Each time you scratch on it, you trace part Of yourself, and thus part of the world, and thus part of the grammar of the universe. It is a huge language, but each of us tracks his or her particular understanding of it."
From A Walk Between Heaven and Earth
Unlike any other guide to journal writing, A Walk Between Heaven and Earth is itself written as a personal journal and as a meditation on the flow of creation. Burghild Nina Holzer demonstrates that the creative process is in fact a large, ongoing movement in our lives and that we may gradually discover the pattern and direction of it by trusting whatever it is we choose to confide to the page. She helps would-be writers recognize the power and importance of opening themselves to the present moment and recording whatever they find there. Holzer's book is both inspiration and model. It will appeal not only to those who wish to explore the creative process as a mystical path, but to all who desire to express themselves through writing.
"Like Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet, this journal is both a useful guide and wonderful to read in its own right. It took only a few pages for me to feel as if I was walking in well-loved familiar places, hearing the voice of an old friend."
Joseph Bruchac, author of Dawn Land
Burghild Nina Holzer teaches us to write by teaching us living process. She is marvelous at following herself for the benefit of teaching others how to do so. I loved her book."
