Why this site?

Thomas Moore's official site is Care of the Soul. Occasionally additional web resources become available, interesting to those who are attracted to his writings and explorations. I hope that this site, Barque: Thomas Moore, will help us to find such links in the bobbing, tidal, ephemeral, impermanent world of the web.
I teach at Centennial College’s Centre for Creative Communication in Toronto. The Centre’s programs attract talented students pursuing careers in journalism, film, broadcasting, advertising, visual arts, and new media design. While students hone their craft skills, I encourage them to go deep ― in course projects and in life. Moore’s work leads in this direction. Others will find different value in his writings. Please email if you find new online sources about Thomas Moore's work. As in nature, we're starting small, sensitive to the elements, flexible to the environment.

"A man is born gentle and weak.
At his death he is hard and stiff.
Green plants are tender and filled with sap.
At their death they are withered and dry.
Therefore the stiff and unbending is the disciple of death.
The gentle and yielding is the disciple of life.
Thus an army without flexibility never wins a battle.
A tree that is unbending is easily broken.
The hard and strong will fall.
The soft and weak will overcome."
-- Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching
