IMG_6231Hi, I’m Bron, a writer and teacher living in Tokyo. I started this blog as a place to record the things that interest and inspire me. I love finding and making connections – between what I’m reading or listening to and whatever is currently happening in my life, to other people, and across a variety of works.

It excites me to come across the same truths expressed in a poem by Mary Oliver, an essay by Siri Hustvedt or a painting by Marlene Dumas.

I believe that all knowledge is an exploration of the same underlying truth, and that there are only two real pursuits in life: love and knowledge

I am grateful to all the writers, artists, thinkers and teachers who have changed my life through sharing their knowledge, and I want to share some of what I’ve learned from them.

My interests vary, from philosophy and Buddhism, motivation and personal development to literature, art and Japanese culture.

I hope that somewhere in all of this there might be something that creates a spark for you – an idea, a book, a podcast – something that inspires you to make a change, read a book, start a new venture, make something.

Please feel free to leave a comment or send me a message on the Contact page. I’d love to hear from you.

The painting used in the banner of this site is by my mother Lynn Mary McLennan, née Lewis (1948–1997). The title of this blog is inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem “Entering”, which you can read here.
