If you’re looking to change the world and it seems less and less possible, I highly recommend you pick up “A Pocketful of Seeds.” Debbie Johnson does a wonderful job with connecting to her reader (of any socio-economic status and of culture).

If you enjoy books like The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Sleep in Me, Let the Great World Spin, and Shock of the Fall, I recommend that you read this book. It is definitely a favorite. I will be following Paraclete Press more closely
I wish you wholeness. I wish you life. I wish you the gift of daybreak where the sun kisses the horizon and never asks for anything in return. I wish you embers that burn tiny holes on your soul to let the light out.
