We are excited to share this small glimpse into what February holds for you. Here is an excerpt from “The End of Secrets” by Esther Emery.
I have kept my humanness in my secrets. I have made them the sanctuary of my self-worth: the place the critics cannot reach. I have woven my own healing, strand by strand and breath by breath.
I thought of birds, leaving a nest.
Don’t doubt that in my secret spaces I have hidden ugly things. My long history of disordered and obsessive eating, childhood shame, perpetuating self-destructive and addictive tendencies, one particularly unappealing past mistake.
But I have hidden beautiful things, too. The silent shelter of tall trees and light on grasses. The astonishing beauty of survival. Perseverance. The breath of life, rising and falling, against a backdrop of mortality.
