About the Author
"As the neighbor of a small pond myself, I found these meditations lovely in their simplicity. And--often the case with ponds--there's more depth there than you might think!"
-- Bill McKibben, environmentalist; educator; author of Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance
"Seductively, this work unfolds a geography of the sacred that is both local and global, both meditation and contemplation. It offers readers diverse ways of living and being in the world."
-- bell hooks, academic; activist; author of All About Love: New Visions
"An inherently interesting and entertaining read from beginning to end, Morning Coffee at the Goldfish Pond is unique, extraordinary, and unreservedly recommended for community library collections." (Small Press Bookwatch, January 2018)
"This book is a journey into the depths of life and our contemporary challenges. Rarely have I seen the local and global more elegantly juxtaposed. The result is nothing short of masterful."
-- Mary Evelyn Tucker, environmentalist; co-founder, Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology; author of Journey of the Universe
"David Zurick takes us on an epic pilgrimage across sacred landscapes around the world. The outer pilgrimage is rugged and raw, full of grit and beauty, and observes the truth of impermanence up close, like sitting near a cremation pyre. And the inner journey illuminates and connects us to the deeper aspects of what it means to be human--empathy, understanding, and connectedness. Morning Coffee at the Goldfish Pond is a meditation on the inter-relationship of geography, movements of energy, and the human spirit. I highly recommend it."
-- Matteo Pistono, teacher of meditation and yoga; author of Meditation: Coming to Know Your Mind and In the Shadow of the Buddha
