is the title of a book of poems (and paintings) by Naomi Shihab Nye. I am anxiously awaiting delivery of a secondhand copy. I fell in love with the title, imagining myself inhabiting the space of pause as one foot connects to the ground and the next foot has not yet fallen. Delicious. I can't wait to read the poems and perhaps share them with you.
The poet was interviewed on Krista Tippett's phenomenal podcast series: On Being. If you don't swim in a dose of Krista Tippett, it's time. Enjoy!
