Fleeting moments of fierce clarity are had when the confusion clears and the gray numbness that hangs about our senses draws back allowing us to see the world and ourselves with sharp relief. Follow author and New England native L.M. Browning in her wanderings across the Northeast, from the solitude of her home along the shore of Connecticut, to the rushing city streets of Boston, to the tall-pine landscape of Arcadia Park in Rhode Island to the quiet edges of Walden Pond.

From the Back Cover:

"Thoreau, that great New England saunterer who serves as one of the inspirations for L. M. Browning's new book, advised never to underestimate the value of a fact, for it one day might flower into a truth. Facts flowering into truths are what one finds on every page herein. Browning's gift is to see the miraculous in the commonplace, and readers will leave her poems and journal entries the wiser and more human. This is no small gift." 
-- Philip F. Gura, author of American Transcendentalism: A History

"L.M.Browning's rich little book invites the reader to face our common "fear [of] the silence" and take a courageous breath. Her Fleeting Moments may not always bring a contented clarity, yet presents an open journal of a journey within, to fiercely face that silence, and dare to walk beyond it into deeper woods where we can embrace some kind of natural sacredness. This is a celebration through suffering, a seeking beyond the search, and a pathway into a welcome unknown. At times the prose itself becomes poetry, and there are delightful glimmers of the New England life many of us only dream of. One imagines Emerson and Fuller including gifts from this book in The Dial." 
--Chris Highland, author of Meditations of Henry David Thoreau and My Address is a River

About the Author:

L.M. Browning grew up in a small fishing village in Connecticut. A longtime student of religion, nature and philosophy these themes permeate her work. In 2010 she wrote a three-title contemplative poetry series that garnered several accolades including 2 pushcart-prize nominations and the Nautilus Gold Medal for Poetry in 2013. In late 2011 she followed up this success with her first full-length novel, The Nameless Man. Browning is a graduate of the University of London and a Fellow with the League of Conservationist Writers. She is partner at Hiraeth Press, Co-Founder of Written River: A Journal of Eco-Poetics as well as Founder and Executive Editor of The Wayfarer: A Journal of Contemplative Literature. In 2011, Browning opened Homebound Publications--a rising independent publishing house based in New England. Her latest title, Fleeting Moments of Fierce Clarity: Journal of a New England Poet, is a journal of her daily contemplative life along the shores of Connecticut and her travels throughout the Northeast. She currently divides her time between her home in Connecticut and her work in Boston. She anticipates the release of a collection of daily meditations in November 2013. Her next novel due out in late 2014.
