“There is only one real sin in the end, and that is not
being who you are, not listening to your soul…”

This book conveys a sense of the unknown, and translates as a journal of unconventional poetry. Underlying themes contain validation, encouragement and support, with moments of melancholy. Thoughts, reflections and advice convey tones ranging from uncertain and ambivalent, to empathic, abstract or direct – occasionally embedded with colored font or striking sketches. Musings reflect the past and future, with momentary recognitions of cognitive distortions. With touching nostalgia and apologetic tributes, it communicates with simple resonance and thought provoking communication.
