Abstract

A collection of essays that explores relationships, cause and effect, spirituality, and acts of attention in the world through a memoir in several different structures. The essays in this collection strive to put ideas in conversation with one another, to create and illustrate the energy and life in any one thing by seeing it in relation to other things. In the Buddhist net of Indra, we are multi-faceted jewels--reflections of reflections of one another; there's nothing that has innate life separate from what it's in relation to. Relationship, connection, is what interests me most in life, and that is reflected throughout my writing.
