A new blurb for A Blue Guitar

Ever since that magical day in April when I read through my draft of How to Play a Blue Guitar, thought “this is not a draft this is the book,” and published it then and there, I have struggled to describe this book.

(Stop me if you’ve heard this recently) As I was reading Seth Godin’s new book The Practice, he asked his readers regarding their projects, “Who’s It For?” and “What’s It For?”

And then, after writing yesterday’s blog post, “A New Dream All Its Own,” I suddenly knew. The book is for anyone for whom “A New Dream All Its Own” resonated.

I scratched out a new blurb:

The Zero Aggression Principle states, “No one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being for any reason whatever; nor should anyone advocate the initiation of force, or delegate it to anyone else.”

This quirky little book contains two dozen poems, short stories, prose poems and aphorisms around the theme of finding a way to live and let live in peace — to co-exist without forcing a way of life on people.

Because “The way you play a blue guitar is the same as the way you play any guitar … It’s built with the same workings, potential melodies and chords, hopes and dreams as any other color guitar. Kind of like people.”

From the author of The Imaginary Revolution.

It’s what I’ve been trying to tell you all along about How to Play a Blue Guitar. I just never thought to answer Seth’s two questions. Silly me.

Now that you know, if I may sell you a copy, please click here.
