your contemplation essentials

from contemplative poems to guided journals, questions cards and notebooks, this new collection has everything you need to spend more time with and on yourself - thinking, writing, being.

the wandering days - poems

The Wandering Days touches on the aimlessness of growing up, and the endless figuring out that comes with it. At their core, these poems are about love: falling out of love, falling in love - with others, the world, nature, and yourself. Love can exist in all sorts of small and big ways, and these poems celebrate that, finding comfort and home in nature and connection.

The Wandering Days is about discovering beauty in the world and the everyday, as we try to embed ourselves into the ever-changing present.

Join me on this meandering journey, and never stop wandering.
