About Liza Achilles

Hello! Will you join me on my journey to seek wisdom and truth through books and elsewhere?

That's what my blog at lizaachilles.com is all about. I read books, and I go about my life, and I distill the bits of wisdom and truth I find into blog posts. Wisdom and truth are elusive, but they can be found, if we search with diligence, courage, and compassion. My hope is that the insights you receive from reading my writings will help you better your life, and our world.

Your support is invaluable to me. Supporting me on Patreon will enable me to continue writing my highly acclaimed blog posts (subscribe for free here!), work toward the publication of my novels and poetry chapbook, and continue my artistic journey by writing more works in the literary genre.

I spend 15-30 hours per week, and often more, on these endeavors. I also spend hundreds of dollars per year to host my website, ensure its privacy and security, and add enhancements to make your user experience better.

Three themes that appear repeatedly in my writings are love, anxiety, and the self. Taking these in reverse order, I believe that we as individual selves are fascinating creatures who have vastly more power than we are aware of. Of course, living as a modern human is an anxiety-producing endeavor, but with wisdom and truth, we can overcome our anxieties and emerge into a place of bravery and strength. And love is everything, everything, everything.

I love you all. Thank you for loving me back. 💘
Goals
$77.83 of $500 per month
When I reach this level of support, my heart will start to glow with love. All that glowing love will begin to radiate back out toward you, blessing you with warmth and peace. Also, I might have a chance of not moving out of my current abode and into a cozy cardboard box under the Route 355 overpass.
