a prompt for you with a little help from Sarah Polley, Pema Chodron & Nancy Reddy
I just finished Run Towards the Danger thanks to your IG recommendation and I agree that it was so thought-provoking and inspiring.
The skating sounds so fun! I have no idea where the nearest roller rink is any more, but I used to LOVE roller skating. I think we should have an Anxious Poets Skate Club as an offshoot of Madwomen! Practice joy and embodiment!
I was just talking to someone dear to me about this today! I’m so glad to have found your work.
I'm loving your newsletter, Emily. I was so happy to see you write about Sarah Polley's book. It was such a fascinating book.
This post is exactly right for me at this moment. There are so many ways to move towards what scares you. I have writing ahead today and meetings with strangers all weekend. Thank you for this beauty!
Wonderfully helpful, Emily. I'm going to do just that—follow my fears into a poem. Thanks!
