(Order now, books will be printed and mailed in late January)
Water & Light: Choose Love Now is a book about
personal interpersonal romantic platonic social communal and national spiritual revolution. Rooted in Kristin’s personal experience with an abusive relationship, it is a collage of poetry, journal entries, and political/social commentary on her experience and on the ways in which we relate to each other as human beings. Water & Light takes the reader on a spiritual journey that includes keen observations of the world we have collectively manifested today and ends with questions about personal and collective human/humane point and purpose. Including but not limited to sparking conversations on relationships, abuse, spirituality, mental health, gender, race, emotional intelligence, healing, ethics, culture, medicine, social responsibility, politics, education, and our criminal “justice” system; the point of this work is to open the floor to deeper and richer dialogue about humanity in general.
