SWIPE FOR THE REST.
If I have spirit animals, I think @jedidiahjenkins is one of them. I stumbled across Jed through an instagram rabbit hole and was so impressed with his writing, his spirit, his honesty...the way he could carve truth out of life like a carpenter finding the bench in an enormous redwood trunk. So, I reached out to him. We enthusiastically met in a slightly slummy little breakfast joint that Victoria Alonso introduced me to. Jed and I both loved the locale almost as much as the refreshing new company. We became fast friends; were kindred spirits and knew it before we even met. .
Jed has written a book. It took him a journey, on a bycicle, from Oregon to Patagonia, plus another four years of writing to get this book to us. And now he has. It’s in bookstores and on best seller lists. People love it. Of course they do! It’s Jed. There on the page. Raw and sensitively, responsibly, wisely filtered. Jed has a way of separating the grain from the chaff when it comes to his writing. There’s not a moment of your precious life, your precious time wasted on his pages. Each word counts. Because Jed doesn’t want to waste a moment of his life, either. He wants to live fully, bravely and beautifully. .
I hope you love his book as much as I did. If you go out and get it, I’ll be doing a good old-fashioned #ELDiscussion about it on Facebook... like old times (you guys who have been following me since the beginning know what I’m talking about. Those who don’t, check out the #). I’ll announce the official date and time next week. For now, grab the book -#ToShakeTheSleepingSelf - and get reading. I have such thoughtful fans so look forward to hearing your reactions and our discussion. #bookclub
