Like most of you all, I’ve been busy outside, romping and working, and not paying much attention to my blog…miss you all, but summer calls.   I’ll be back in the saddle come coolness

However, for the Central Oregon readers, wanted to make sure you know that Patti Digh of 37 days and the wondrous Life is a Verb book is coming to Bend tomorrow, July 25th for a reading at Camalli Book Company 5:00pm-6:30pm. 

Unfortunately I can’t figure out how to logistically have her favorite ice cream, as described in LIAV, but we’ll have some nice civil treats.  Since Patti will be turning 50 in a miniscule few days, we’ll need to celebrate that milestone as well!  If you happen to have any hand-cranked lavender/vanilla ice cream, bring it over, will ya?

Come on by Camalli to be with Patti reading and talking about the book she has assembled from stories and art that has been gifted to her from readers around the world. The gist of it is about all of us waking up to find ourselves in this remarkable world where we can live as if today was one of our final 37 days, because of course, some day it will be. 

Directions to Camalli are here. 1288 SW Simpson Ave # C, Bend, OR 541.323.6134  off the Century/Simpson roundabout, between Ray’s and Safeway!

37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally


"Life is a Verb is brilliantly-crafted, raw, gorgeously-designed, and daringly different from ‘self-help’ books. It relates, through stories that sparkle and astonish and soar, how to move, to be on your way, to realize who you really are through your actions. Every word of this book is essential."
-Dave Pollard, author of How to Save the World and Finding the Sweet Spot: The Natural Entrepreneur’s Guide to Responsible, Sustainable, Joyful Work

Some stories/essays from the Life is a Verb:

  • Eat raw tarantulas in hot sauce for someone
  • (Real) Women play the tuba
  • Stop doing insignificant work in the world
  • Dance in your car
  • Love unlovable people
  • Burn those jeans
  • Eat on a door
  • Carry a small grape
  • Say hi to Yaron (one of my favorites)
  • Unpack your boxes
  • “The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another; and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it.” – James M. Barrie
