Breath Beat, Heart Beat: Intoning the Rhizome is a collection of nonfiction lyric essays written as a spiral of moments. Moments that illuminate connections. Connections that become visible as the moments unravel and twine around each other. These are stories of class. Of interconnectivity. Of learning to care for and to value others. Stories about human welfare and natural welfare and the structural problems facing both. This collection works towards understanding the deep connections between our ecological and social selves. Opening eyes to privilege and risk and value. And growing a relationship to place in a sentient and more than human world.
