Book Review: Catching the Big Fish

Hey, gang! I know it's been a while, but I haven't forgotten you, I promise. I've missed you and I've missed blogging, so I was writing a quick book review over at Goodreads and saw that I could share it here. I thought that would be a good way to say Howdy here at the Yada Feast and restart our conversation (again). I hope you've been well and I also hope you enjoy this quirky little book review.

See you soon!

Hugs from CT,

Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and CreativityCatching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity by David Lynch

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


David Lynch shares insights into the creative process, film making and how meditation, specifically Transcendental Meditation, has helped to shape his work and his life. Catching the Big Fish is a little book with tight chapters offered in a Lynch-esque stream of consciousness style. Like tiny tasty bites in a modern gourmet restaurant, he feeds his readers interesting thoughts and insights, leaving us satisfied (perhaps even dazzled) but not quite full. Highly recommended for Lynch fans for fascinating tidbits of info about his films, and also for anyone seeking a deeper path into the creative process and life. Not recommended for folks who consider meditation, etc. "airy-fairy"--the book will likely annoy you. :-) The proceeds of the book go to the DavidLynchFoundation.org for education.
