I wanted this to last forever. I loved every moment. And went through a million emotions.

Topics range from religious faith, family, economy, love, being gay, sex. Each text is taking you in the author's universe which is intense, conflicted and beautiful.
Oh, I probably read the book 3 times since I got it.
Equal parts affirming, provoking, and comfortable--this book is an accomplishment of tone.
love LOVE love this collection! I'm so happy it exists in the world.
Full of heartfelt insight. Read these slowly; there is true talent here.
