Regarding Meaningful Books

During a conversation this morning about something in another context entirely, my wife made a comment that was startling to me. She said “These books are going to be very important to a lot of people, maybe important to the whole world.” I hadn’t realized, not until that moment, that she felt that way about The Meditations Trilogy.

The lessons in the pages of these books was hard-won. And hopefully, that makes it valuable to a lot of people.

The first volume, DRAWING OUT THE DRAGONS: A Meditation on Art, Destiny, and the Power of Choice, is being presented by the publisher as “A Beginner’s Guide To Making Choices That Matter,”, and it is — for all of us. Because we are all imperfect in some way; we are all broken inside, despite what we may often present outwardly. And we all make mistakes. In that way, we are always perpetual beginners — and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others. But, only the mistakes we don’t learn from are true failures.

I am just a beginner at making choices that matter — but I have made some good ones. The best of them — along with some of the failures which became learning experiences — are in this book. The national on-sale date is tomorrow; already they are being sold in bookstores everywhere; and, as the photo below can attest, we have copies for sale (which can be signed and personalized) via the Coppervale Marketplace, here.

I wrote this book for you. And I wrote this book for me. I hope it brings greater meaning to all of our lives.
