A dream acknowledges our collective sorrow over the damage we’ve done to the sea and our attempts to correct our wrongs. The right brain plays off the sea within our bodies.

New Book of Poetry from Local Author

When: Thursday, May 25, 2017

 

Between 2016 & 2017 I spilled onto pages all the joys, pains, successes and failures I experienced. I wrote about letting go of stale love and picking up new love. I wrote about depressive states and suicidal thoughts. I wrote about dreams of becoming a bigger, lighter version of myself and becoming a mother. I spilled it all. My first book of poetry, Reflections, is available at Amazon.com. Read a sample and if resonates with your soul, buy a copy. https://www.amazon.com/Reflections-Day-Dream-Alston/dp/1542838274/
