It chronicles a difficult period through poetry.
The image below is the catalyst and inspiration for the book. This single image gave me hope, and helped my struggling spirit and clouded mind to write simple words, which I always struggle to find in times of stress and conflict.
I usually find it very hard to share, which is one of the motivation behind my 365 projects. It is very easy to slip into being a hermit when one is going through major transitions in life. I have found comfort, strength, and focus in living life literally one day at atime

There is utter happiness in a simple moment
There is simple joy in a basic action
As a little hand grasp the still life
Hope is rediscovered
Looking back, life has indeed changed a lot since I wrote this poem three years ago. There are still a lot of major changes ahead, the only difference is, I feel my spirit is much stronger, my mind clearer.

I found this quote, that I would like to share to celebrate the third year anniversary of this book, that empowered me:
Words are a form of action, capable of influencing change.
How was life for your three years ago? Has writing words changed your life?
