I haven’t said it enough. At least not here, and I must.
It’s been 9 months now since I published my first book; OF THE OCEAN. My heart in water and words, poetry and prose, between pages and tides; my heartfelt thanks to every wonderful soul who purchased it.
OF THE OCEAN was the existential offering of a woman born of saltwater people, who searched herself to discover where oceans began. My search took my to the mountains, to the fresh water, to the night sky and finally home again to my people, who today, I have never felt closer nor more bound to. New questions (poetry) are brewing.
In recognition of the journey thus far and in celebration of LIFE, for a limited time my book is available for purchase at $9.95 off the RRP. Enter the code LOVE at check out to redeem. Gift it to yourself, or to someone else, in the knowledge that these words were designed to take dreams off pages, and into fruition. Available here.
Be kind always, even in the face of fear, even if you feel repulsed. Prepare to be amazed and you will be. Be interested in your surroundings. When you are interested you can care. When you care you can find meaning. When you find meaning you can act. When you act, you actualise your purpose. When you actualise your purpose, you find secret tunnels to happiness.
Do the thing you think you cannot. Try the things you haven’t tried. Step beyond your comfort zone. Fear bows to experience. Experience creates confidence. Confidence gives you the power to follow through on your ideas. Bringing your ideas to fruition can help people. Helping people makes you humble. Humility makes you radiate love.
This will make me proud.
This will make you happy.
This is all I want.
These things I hope to teach you my sweet boys. Incrementally. In moments as otherwise meaningless, as holding a snake.
