Description of the Book :


The journey to self-discovery is sometimes as simple as appreciating the stars in the sky, while at other times it is as complex as understanding our place among them. In his first published poetry collection, Emond empathetically describes the world with lyrical detail, as one who has lost himself in love and the pain that has come from it. This collection is informed by his own solitary experience of finding himself in an uncertain, yet beautiful world. Everyone goes through seasons, years, or decades of substantial change to molt into a new version of themselves. How do you open yourself to the world and who will you change into? Grab a blanket and get cozy in the moonlight, as you pause to appreciate the world around you and rediscover yourself under the stars.
