It reminds us that regardless of the day we've experienced; we are still beautifully and devastatingly hopeful and human. Meera Lee Patel's colorful artwork illustrates the expansiveness of our feelings and her stunning words remind us that life is a spectrum of many emotions; comfort, discomfort, acceptance, loneliness, love, enthusiasm and open-heartedness, too. And though that spectrum may not always be convenient, it undoubtedly leads us to the truest versions of ourselves. This book is a beautiful gift to all of us."
