On December 31, 1907, Times Squares holds its first New Year’s Eve celebration. The turn of the year offers many opportunities for beginnings as endings complete. This happens in the public eye like at Time Square’s New Year’s countdown and also in our personal lives. It is common to see the lineup of self-help guides in the book stores and library displays this time of year. We are often ready do create our own new beginnings. For some of us, that means we want to contribute to the wonderful collection of writing we have read over the years. For that Natalie Goldberg’s zen-minded approach to writing, “Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within,” is a classic selection. With the experience of a teacher who has lead writers of many kinds over decades, Goldberg frames writing as a practice that helps us comprehend the value of our lives.
