All the feels! The project I set an intention to complete while working with other yogis in a December 31st workshop two years ago...is now a reality!
[From the 2018 press release]
"Midwestern natives Tracey L. Kelley and Lynne A. Kasey use various people and places to inspire their artistic endeavors. Publisher humanivity is proud to represent their first creative collaboration, one moment of a single day: essays.
Kelley's essays transform every day interactions into remarkable encounters, offering honest reflection and personal struggles on topics ranging from gun control and immigration to religion and family relations.
They explore societal questions: What does it mean to cultivate intimacy in seemingly ordinary conversation? When does our shared humanity help us overcome conflict? How do we assign value to a person or situation in one moment, long after the opportunity has passed? Kelley and Kasey provide space for introspection, and raise awareness about how the interplay of connection and vulnerability expands our capacity to mindfully engage with the world around us.
Each chapter's end allows a reader to pause, using Kasey's provocative imagery to delve deeper into a feeling, memory, or consideration motivated by Kelley's insightful attention to consciousness. one moment of a single day also has an interactive component for workshops and reading groups, furthering the intent of soulful discussion and introspection displayed in the book."
