Thank you to my husband, Bob Audette, a man of mountainous thought and persistent, courageous love, for suggesting Thubron.
Bob regularly climbs Mount Monadnock and writes about his journeys. Connect with him on Facebook to read his essays, which explore hiking, masculinity, fatherhood, son-hood, music, the soul, rage, and ice. You’ll love him as much as I do.
What did you love?
You and I are listening with the same kind of fresh ears this time. Unless you know Colin Thubron’s work already?
Assuming it’s new to you too, we don’t know this book, and we don’t know this author, and so the beauty in the passage arises on its own terms. What delicious tuning happens in our ears, paying attention to something so cleanly!
Tell us what you loved.
