Every now and then I come across writing that really moves me. It's the kind of work that really causes me to do some of soul searching. It's a poetic worldview that I feel needs to be shared with as many people as possible. In this case it was the work of Patti Digh. I came across snippets of her work in Danielle LaPorte's book, and was always intrigued.  I finally picked up Patti's book and was amazed.  This was one of my favorite interviews I've ever done.
