And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom

Amelie Odette RousseauThe Messy Art of Remembering and Becoming Whole

Amelie Odette Rousseau’s latest book

Several years ago, the Divine decided I should write a book. I told the Divine “no.” You can imagine how that worked out. Fast forward to this year and I have written a book. Actually, I have written two books, several short stories and many poems. This book I ended up writing was possibly a bit different than the one the Divine had in mind, but it suited me and needed to get out. The book the Divine wanted me to write will soon be available on this website.
