The cover and title of the book is beautiful. I got the book and have been able to dive into the words, feeling them wrap around inside of me in such a soothing way. The writing style and the language used by the author is beautiful. I liked how the writing easily flowed and kept me captivated throughout the book.
This collection has allowed me to look into my inner thoughts and feelings just as the author did. Her creative exploration and beautiful self descriptions are so inspiring in so many ways.
This book came just at the right time. In the midst of a world trying to push us to do more and work harder, sometimes we need to be reminded to “slow down” and be present. This book will encourage your heart and remind you to take time to stop and look around you.
The author wonderfully portrays a spectrum of human experience through her writing. I would definitely recommend this book to the poetry lovers, you'll surely enjoy reading this!
