“If you long to walk more deeply into the wilderness of poetry, I can’t think of a more masterful and generous guide than poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer. In this companion edition, Rosemerry takes you by the hand and leads you to closer intimacy with not only poetry, but with all of life.
—Julia Fehrenbacher, poet and author of Staying in Love“
“Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer has always been a wise and gentle guide, leading us into deeper presence with her luminous poems. Yet what she has crafted here, as a companion to an already soul-nourishing anthology, is nothing short of a sacred text that will lift you up, and keep you company on the whole human journey—from joy to loss and back to the joy of full aliveness again.”
—James Crews, author of Kindness Will Save the World
