MY LIFE IN SEVEN WORDS
These seven words are: Transparency, credibility, creativity, intimacy, wonder, earth, yes! This is the book I have written in the shortest time in my whole life: six days for a book on seven words. It was the answer to the request of a wise publisher who suggested the idea; and the idea was so irresistible that on reading his letter, the seven words sprung by themselves in my mind, I went to the keyboard, and I sent him the typescript of the book together with my letter of acceptance of his proposal. Umashankar Joshi, poet and friend, used to say that publishers are benefactors of writers... because they prod them to write. Javier Cortes is certainly one such.
