I'm trying to remember a book a friend gave me years ago (then I passed it on to another friend). It's by a female writer, it's nonfiction, and has a clay bowl (or mug?) on the cover. I remember it was about finding peace (maybe?) or serenity. The author recounted a class where she either drew the same bowl over and over, or kept creating clay bowls...

Ring any bells for anyone? I think it's a fairly popular book. I've googled and searched on Amazon and Bookfinder, and the title's just not coming to me!

Thanks for any help!

I don't remember a book like that. Have you checked Oprah's book club selections? It sounds like the sort of book that might be on her list.

Could it be you're remembering a story from "Kitchen Table Wisdom"? I have no idea otherwise. Just putzed around a bit trying to think of ways to look and saw that book with a cup and saucer on the cover.

No, but I looove that book!

I keep seeing the word 'Simple', but that still hasn't jogged anything, memory-, google-, or Amazon-wise. (It's definitely not Simple Abundance!) It's a rather small book... That, of course, may not have 'Simple' in the title at all!

Here's to hoping it will pop into my head in the middle of the night!
