This is a story about love and loss. This full-color book is a collection of poems and landscape photographs--all written, shot, and arranged by the author.

Composed in the style of a memoir, she shares her experiences through words and photos. This window into her emotions reveals the dark side of love as it narrates the journey through relationships, friendships, it's-complicated-ships, and self-identity. But really, it's a story about finding beauty in pain through growth.

Note from the author:

"Everybody hurts. But not everyone is willing to share their pain from weak moments. It's difficult to put it all out there. I believe, these are the moments that mark beginnings of transformation. I hope this book helps people feel a little less lonely and a little more inspired. We all feel it."

Photographs include: Yosemite NP; Antelope Island SP; Anza-Borrego Desert SP; Death Valley NP; Glacier NP; Grand Teton NP; Lake Tahoe, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Olympic NP; Pacific NW beaches; Provincetown, MA; Saguaro NP; Saratoga Springs, UT; Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP; Sierra Nevadas; White Sands NM; Yellowstone NP; and more.

A very inspiring and heartfelt story of discovering oneself through passion, finding strength to face fears, and the art of learning to let go. Lessons learned are touching and motivational for readers to follow the author's journey in discovering ways to positively look back on past relationships and redefine them as tools for her growth. Fiercely strong and raw.

This is a story of a life, of struggles and finding self and the beauty of life - and nature. For when Lee needs to think and heal most, she heads to nature, specifically, to our national parks and other outdoor spaces. A poet, photographer, a phenomenologist digging deep, Lee beautifully shares her life. This is everything - about life, about growing and relationships and change, about finding solace in nature - paired with extraordinary photos that show us the grace of our world. Wherever you are in your life, in both inner and outer journeys, this book will help you illuminate your own journeys. Highly recommended.
