Very pleased to announce that my non-fiction essay, "Lonely Hearts Club," on the crisis of loneliness in America is being published in Y.A.W.P. literary magazine.
And it is a crisis.
An excerpt from the essay:
"We need a return to each other and the natural world. And we need to reinvent what it means to be the social animal that we are; it is not perfect kids, mothers, brothers, and lovers, but an embracing of our shared imperfections, and the grievances that reside, privately, in the corridors of our hearts. We must open those heart spaces and listen to each other, listening for the echoes in their—our—stories, reaching for a—our—universal story."
