This collection is my third major compilation of poems and images, bringing together verses from fourteen chapbooks, created between October 2013 and July 2015, along with photos from my wanderings during that same spell. During that time, so much did change. The evolution of my grief and longing changed its dimensions and reached a point where I felt confident enough to search for new love; then I learned how rocky that search could be, how much I still had to learn and grow.
