Moore blogs during tour for A Life at Work

On the road in the San Francisco area, Thomas Moore blogs about recent book tour appearances for A Life at Work, at the Barque forum. He mentions James Hillman’s idea of longing as it applies to "the ultimate job or project." Moore adds, "We need that fantasy of a job out of reach. It keeps the soul alive. The frustrating thing is that it is never fully satisfied." In this post, he also talks about his next writing project.

During the evening of Saturday, March 8, Moore spoke at One Taste, San Francisco’s urban retreat centre. In 2004, Silke Tudor wrote about a day at the centre for San Francisco Weekly:
"One Taste is a mindful-living clubhouse and transcendental marketplace for all your California-conscious needs. Yoga, raw foods, meditation, massage, gem-stone therapy, motivational speakers, relationship workshops, orgasmic rebalancing, bioelectography, community dancing, and the occasional circus performer, butoh dancer, and/or urban beat-box poet: All these are features on the One Taste calendar. A fully functional cafe, bookstore, and art gallery and an adjoining set of massage studios are on the way."
Moore has added a comment about his reading at One Taste to his Barque forum blog post.
