Love Notes to the Body is a meditation on the stories we carry and the ritual of releasing.
 

It's the story of a woman who has constructed catacombs for the past and rebuilt herself from rubble.
 
It's a parable of body politics, poems for those walking out of trauma and into relief.
 
It's a book for the women having trouble saying I love you to the mirror.
 
It's the words I wish I had ten years ago - a reminder of how easily the body can float when we realize there's truly nothing weighing us down.
