Steve Patrick reads and signs A WHOLE OF THE WHOLE. Part of UHBF

October 6 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Join us Saturday, October 6, at 2 PM or a reading and signing with Steve Patrick and A WHOLE OF THE WHOLE!

Have you ever considered what a word actually is? What would happen if you didn’t take words as seriously? What if you realized they aren’t suitable for the heaviness they so often convey? What if you began to view words as mere tools, highly limited, highly misunderstood, and frequently misused?

Steve Patrick was lost in words until he discovered they are not the truth tellers he took them to be. The stream of words passing through his mind caused stress and constriction that almost constantly lurked beneath my happy self. Though he was hardly aware of it, this underground torment generated negativity for him and those around him through judgment, criticism, and all kinds of comparison.

In the process of forming any single word, most of reality is left out. Words exclude in order to become shortcuts for naming. They are only arrows that point toward reality but don t represent it. For Steve Patrick, experiencing reality firsthand, and directly, brings a joy of living and gratitude for life never imagined before he opened up to it.

Steve Patrick discusses these and other ideas, followed by a signing.

Part of Utah Humanities Book Festival.
