Moore reveals his ghost-writer companion

In yesterday’s blog post, Thomas Moore describes a close relationship that contributes to his writing. Read "My silent partner" on Moore's site. He includes:
“I learn from his patience, his love of life, his easy and playful aggression, his finicky taste in food and, above all, the contemplative nature of his presence. He has a good mixture of the puer and senex in him — Hillman’s favorite images of youth and age. He’s a bit heavy now, and yet he still leaps into the air, or tries to, when he’s excited about something. When was the last time I lifted off the ground in sheer delight?”
Moore shares other features of life that he learns from L.B. whose influence seeps into Moore’s books.
