Here we are at 2017. In a couple of months this blog will be 10 years old. I have been a very irregular poster this past year but I do plan to change that this year.
First, my book is on its way. It will come out in March, though I do not have an exact date yet. I will be posting about it when I know more. It can be preordered now from the publisher, Karnac Books or from Amazon. The title is The Fat Lady Sings:A Psychological Exploration of the Cultural Fat Complex and Its Effects.
It’s an interesting process, this movement from accepted manuscript to actual book, rather like a pregnancy. A lot of waiting, then asking people if they will endorse and/or review the book. That one was tough, but I did it and everyone I asked agreed. I have seen a picture of a proof copy of the book, so now I know it is real.
By the way, if you know of any group the might be interested in a presentation, reading or workshop, preferably in New England, let me know.
Second, I want to keep my Jungian eye turns on psychotherapy and on some of the issues we will be contending with in the months to come. Like how do we find meaning in the outcome of this election? How do we deal with whatever anxieties it arouses in us?
Oh, and I’ll also post about mundane things like knitting and books I like or movies or television shows or even recipes.
So stay tuned.
And Happy New Year!
