On my way out the door last night, my husband said something about not spending too much. I was headed to an event in support of the Seven Doctors Project, and he knew there was a silent auction. I think he was relieved when he asked if I bought anything and I said, "just a book." What I did not say was that I actually bought this book, a limited edition (one of only 85) of Steve Langan's What It Looks Like, How It Flies.
We don't really need to talk about what I spent, do we? And anyway, it was for a great cause.
Founded by poet Steve Langan in 2008, the Seven Doctors Project assists physicians, healthcare workers, and members of the broader professional community in the exploration of the creative process through study and practice of creative writing.
You can find out more about the project and make a tax-deductible donation here.
(I should probably mention that I am teaching faculty with 7DP, so it's a program that's near and dear to my heart. And also, I clearly need them to be able to pay me since I just bought this really expensive book.)
