Honest and deeply beautiful

This collection truly touched and inspired me. It made me feel a little less alone in this world. I trust her writing, and now I’m a little less scared of Dragons.

Essential Reading

This woman was a rare genius. Very generous of her to write so many surprisingly accurate ideas.
