This book is about, perhaps not in all instances laughing, but opening your mind up to possibilities of fascination, tenderness and humanity during the heaviest times. More importantly, this book is exploring the space past survival, and what people do after trauma ends, at least in its immediate gravity. What does the body feel like after letting go? What happens after those loved are let go and buried? What happens during the journey and upon arrival? This book might not give substantial answers, but it definitely investigates the emotional investments and discoveries. Through telling stories, and observing unexpected beauty in a world that is devoured by destruction, this manuscript is unleashing a voice that was misplaced between a society's understandable harshness, and a mind's blockade in the middle of crises, and eventually, providing little spaces of self-cultivated freedom.
