This is a story about love and loss. This full-color book is a collection of poems and landscape photographs--all written, shot, and arranged by the author. Composed in the style of a memoir, she shares her experiences through words and photos. This window into her emotions reveals the dark side of love as it narrates the journey through relationships, friendships, it's-complicated-ships, and self-identity. But really, it's a story about finding beauty in pain through growth. Note from the author: "Everybody hurts. But not everyone is willing to share their pain from weak moments. It's difficult to put it all out there. I believe, these are the moments that mark beginnings of transformation. I hope this book helps people feel a little less lonely and a little more inspired. We all feel it." Photographs include: Yosemite NP; Antelope Island SP; Anza-Borrego Desert SP; Death Valley NP; Glacier NP; Grand Teton NP; Lake Tahoe, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Olympic NP; Pacific NW beaches; Provincetown, MA; Saguaro NP; Saratoga Springs, UT; Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP; Sierra Nevadas; White Sands NM; Yellowstone NP; and more. All proceeds from the first year of publication through Sep 2017 will be donated to: National Parks Conservation Association National YoungArts Foundationshow more

Review quote

"A poet, a photographer, a phenomenologist digging deep, Lee beautifully shares her life. This is everything - about life, about growing and relationships and change, about finding solace in nature - paired with extraordinary photos that show us the grace of our world. Wherever you are in your life, in both inner and outer journeys, this book will help you illuminate your own journeys. Highly recommended." -Dr. Jessie Voigts, Wandering Educators "Artistic. Creative. Refreshing. Absolutely loving it." -Lema Abeng-Nsah, DUNIA Magazine "Lee's stunning landscape photos are the stars of this collection. The simple lines and soft palette on some two-page spreads demand attention and give reason to pause. Shots of birds in flight, details of bark on towering trees, and unusual angles of skylines capture the world's majesty and hushed stillness. Lee's work raises an important point about the challenge of sharing highly personal experiences and conveying a deeper, universal meaning. Photography and word lovers, those mourning lost love or celebrating found love, and others on a journey of self-discovery will find escaping into this collection to be a memorable trip." -Andrea Hammer, Foreword Reviews "Words and images waltz gracefully across the pages in this artfully arranged poetry collection." -Kirkus Reviewsshow more
