The Mysticism of the Ordinary

Post date: Aug 06, 2017 7:1:13 PM

A new contribution to the “Learning From” section of my Essays page is “The Mysticism of Ordinary Experience: Learning Haiku from James P. Carse.” This essay, just published in Presence, unpacks various connections between haiku poetry and an appreciation of the ordinary through both philosophical and popular perceptions of mysticism. Meanwhile, also check out “For the Birds,” a rengay I wrote with Gina Cohen and Nicholas Klacsanzky, just added to the Rengay page, also recently from Presence.
