"The Pen and the Bell is a needed reminder that to be fully alive and alert is a prerequisite to writing well. Brenda Miller and Holly Hughes are the perfect guides for helping us all slow down and see the world around us. What a wise, warm, wonderful book!" --Dinty W. Moore, author of The Mindful Writer
"Strictly speaking, this isn't a book--it's a beautiful, quiet path into the deep woods of contemplative practice through the medium of the written word." --from the foreword by Norman Fischer, author of When You Greet Me I Bow: Notes and Reflections from a Life in Zen and Training in Compassion, among others
"This isn't a book--it's a beautiful, quiet path into the deep woods of contemplative practice through the medium of the written word. Yes, reading its chapters will delight you. Yes, listening to these two wise women talk quietly about their lives and their writing process is a sweet and effortless reading experience that will make you feel as if you are sitting across from them, a cup of tea in front of you, hearing the measure and lilt of their kindly, honest, voices. But the real crux of this book;path isn't their words--it's yours."--Norman Fischer, author Taking Our Places
