A personal recommendation to any of you out there who love words as much as I do!
Anybody who has lived, anybody who has loved and lost will hear the echoes of their own hopes and dreams sounding throughout the poetry in The Weight of Missing, the emotive debut poetry collection by Emily R. Paget. Simultaneously intimate and personal – and authentically Universal – Hope looms large. Paget affords us this gift, a reminder of what it means to be human.
If you would like to order Emily’s book, and I really hope you do, you can do here or through her website.
Some years back I was lucky enough to have Emily write a piece for Ahimsa on Faith, Hope and Courage so it is truly beautiful to see her work evolve into the masterpiece that is The Weight of Missing.
