Romancing the Sur

Thursday, February 15, 2018, 12:00 AM

Romancing the Sur at the Henry Miller Library on Valentines Day  When: Wednesday February 14 from 4pm – 6pmThis Valentine's Day, give your Valentine a taste of life in Big Sur! Linda Sonrisa Jones has spent two decades on the ridge that Henry Miller called home, and writes about the passion it takes to embrace the chaos, impermanence and wild beauty of life on the coast.  Romancing the Sur tells of the restorative power of living up a dirt road. There are views of the lunar goddess, lupine blossom sorbet, and bathing in a claw-foot tub as condors soar above. There are also life-changing wildfires, sneaky rattlesnakes, and a host of marvelous eccentric characters with wisdom to share.  Book-signing and presentation by the author. Copies available for sale with 25% discount for locals. Wine and cheese will be served! “Linda Sonrisa's writing, like a car she once had, is convertible—she converts her experiences of Big Sur so that we get to step into her rural, effervescent life. She’ll take you for a spin in her red Miata along the highway's tight curves and you too will find that “everything is beautiful again.”Get right up close to her experience of the transformation of fire into ash into gratitude. Here's a writer who listens with such care that she can hear a friend's sadness in a raven's voice and his joy in singing finches. If we could all live our lives with such attention the world would be a better place. If we could all write like this, wouldn’t that be something!” Patrice Vecchione, author Step into Nature: Nurturing Imagination & Spirit in Everyday Life
