I AM DOING AN {UNNAMED} THING: HELP ME WRITE A FREE BOOK

I am working on a FREE BOOK of poems that will explore love, simplicity, and infinity as it exists in the moments. I don't mean fluffy love either. Ha! I mean love that bears, holds, releases, uncovers, and restores. If you read my previous book you may be wondering how I/we get to love. Personally, I believe that answering this question is a life-saving one. For the world, we always say love is all we need. Love will not melt systemic institutions and violence away, but what can it do? 

WHO AM I
I am a poet of depth that is learning love and simplicity. My work has consisted of writing, growing, teaching, performing, coaching, counseling, creating, building, and always back to...writing. Always.

My previous book explored the pain and beauty of our socially constructed humanity. It also explored the ways I have moved with and through this pain and imagined beauty.

WHY LOVE & PATREON
It is time for me to dive into what restores, regenerates, confronts, and challenges. I want to find out the ways that love sneaks into the moments, deeply transforming us. I came to Patreon to share my process and to be held accountable by a tribe of creators & supporters.

Brief Answer: To get the people free
Longer Answer: To offer love as an actionable tool in today's world through A FREE POETRY BOOK. To investigate love as an objective and subjective phenomenon that exists powerfully in simplicity and moments, both jarring and liberating. To offer to the world an investigation into and also a remembering of love.
