Description: “Poems rooted in darkness, and poems reaching toward the light; poems filled with spirit, and poems that pierce the heart: All can be found here in the author’s first-ever published collection of works. Alongside beautiful photographs and essays capturing some of the joys and struggles of rural life, the author’s words illuminate her own deeply personal experience, simultaneously revealing her connection to and profound reverence for the natural world. From struggling to survive heartache to contemplating humanity’s place in the universe, the poems and essays contained in this volume attempt to ask and to answer some of life’s most difficult questions. They are words and images meant to awaken, to inspire, to live by. They are screams as well as whispers, giving voice to that inside which is rarely spoken aloud.”
I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
