Author website:
According to Eric Weiner, thin places are … locales where the distance between heaven and earth collapses and we’re able to catch glimpses of … the Infinite Whatever … . In thin places, we become our more essential selves. Most places Carolyn Martin visits have the potential to be “thin.” Puerto Vallarta, Taos, Joshua Tree, Zion, Amherst, Palm Springs, and Denver have already collapsed for her, and so have conversations, relationships, her garden, and articles in National Geographic. These fifty-six poems are the result of years of traveling in many directions to catch “the Infinite Whatever” and the essential self.
