Cosmic Bowling: The I-Ching Poems (Essential Poets series #277) (Paperback)
This book is a collaborative work of Ted Goodden?s ceramic sculptures and Cornelia Hoogland?s poems. Specifically, they are responding through image and text to the 64 hexagrams contained in the ancient book of wisdom, the I Ching, or Book of Changes. Cosmic Bowling's calm weather lands in the midst of twitter storms in which everybody wants to start a conversation. Here's a conversation -- facilitated through visual art and poetry -- that's been going on for three millennia, one that asks the perennial question: How should we live now?
