Take 10! By Kevin L. Barclay   Take 10!

Remember when you were perhaps just a little overheated, your mom used to say, “Count to 10”?

Well, that’s what we might all need, with the world seeming to spin as fast as it is now and with all the different things going on. Maybe we just need to Take 10—maybe take 10 breaths, 10 steps. We are 10 seconds away from making a better decision! Many people have said that a situation could have turned out differently had they paused and given it more thought.

This book will help you continue on the interesting journey you have already begun. This is a guide to help you understand that you already have the tools inside you to do what you need to take care of yourself. You already have the basis of understanding. You already have everything you need at your fingertips. You don’t have to recite any mantras or anything; you just have to remember to take it easier.

Pam Houston’s New Book @ Out West Books
Sep 27 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Deep Creek

Join us at 6 pm for a preview of Deep Creek with Pam Houston.

“How do we become who we are in the world? We ask the world to teach us.”

On her 120-acre homestead high in the Colorado Rockies, beloved writer Pam Houston learns what it means to care for a piece of land and the creatures on it. Elk calves and bluebirds mark the changing seasons, winter temperatures drop to 35 below, and lightning sparks a 110,000-acre wildfire, threatening her century-old barn and all its inhabitants. Through her travels from the Gulf of Mexico to Alaska, she explores what ties her to the Earth, the ranch most of all. Alongside her devoted Irish wolfhounds and a spirited troupe of horses, donkeys, and Icelandic sheep, the ranch becomes Houston’s sanctuary, a place where she discovers how the natural world has mothered and healed her after a childhood of horrific parental abuse and neglect.

In essays as lucid and invigorating as mountain air, Deep Creek delivers Houston’s most profound meditations yet on how “to live simultaneously inside the wonder and the grief…to love the damaged world and do what I can to help it thrive.”
