Book Launch Party

My favorite stories were the quiet ones, the humble ones, the stories told by individual rocks, trees, rivers, and birds. The stories that might be found in books but are best experienced with your body. …In touching the earth, my own stories shifted. I began to feel less like a confused human among humans and more like an individual among myriad individuals, one bundle of stories on an earth full of stories.”
