"I’ve never been afraid of my own pain. I only seek to stop the death of everyone and everything I love. I want us all to be unending, but sometimes, there is never even a heartbeat. The heartbeat is gone. It’s gone. It’s gone, and it never existed, but it’s alive. It is inside all of us."
A Thousand Winters in Me is a collection of essays that form a body of grief and survival: A telling of love's unstoppable march despite the lover long gone, the body's continuance breakdown, and time's crushing irony. Deeply lyrical and introspective, the essays in this chapbook collect into a haunting chant, a way of carrying on through grief and glory.
