A Year of Being Here Leads to Publication of Mindfulness Poetry Anthology

Though this online project ended on January 1, 2016, I'm happy to announce that it has led to the creation of a print anthology. Grayson Books will publish Poetry of Presence: An Anthology of Mindfulness Poems in late summer, 2017. Edited with my friend and colleague Ruby R. Wilson, this book grew directly out of A Year of Being Here and wouldn't have happened without the support and encouragement of this blog's subscribers, to whom I'll always be grateful.

I invite you to join the Poetry of Presence email list at this link. As our gift for signing up, you'll receive a mindfulness poem, accompanied by "Great Egret Bow," the fabulous cover photograph by David Moynahan. We'll send you occasional news about the anthology, including notification of its official release.

A Year of Being Here will remain online indefinitely for your browsing enjoyment.

Deep peace,
Phyllis Cole-Dai
