On the spring equinox & the physical consequences of a roiling inner world
yes, I will read your book. your words move me deeply.
Literally me waking with depression and anxiety every day: “perching yourself at the perfect cusp between day and night, and turning your face to the light.”
Yes. Yes, yes, yes. Thank you, Talia.
I will read your book. ♥
Talia, your writing has such breadth and light and beauty.
I love your writing. In fact, "Culture Warlords" inspired me to put 85K words into a draft novel that I HOPE to see in print someday. Yes, it's HOPE that sometimes it's all we're left with.
I look forward to reading your book when ever it is ready. I will preorder it as soon as I am told I can. You can count on that.
Culture Warlords amazed me over your courage.
This was tough to read because it's so incredibly relatable. I am glad you wrote it and sent it out.
Brilliant, heartfelt, and so true. Thank you.
Thank you for this
I was saving this until I needed it. That was today.
In return, a poem by my sister-of-choice, Salena Godden.
Courage is a Muscle
Courage is the muscle
we use when we speak,
if we’re being talked over
and told we’re too weak.
And when we get weary
and when it gets tough,
it’s our united courage says
Enough is enough.
we work night and day,
to get equal rights
to get equal pay.
Our blood is taxed
our blood is shame,
our courage unites us
for we all bleed the same.
we flex when we must,
courage is the muscle
for truth and for trust.
if we’re being walked over
we march side by side,
100 years, we’re still marching
with courage and with pride.
