.real. Coming of Age - Keeping our Soul
on May 10, 2013
.real. is a beautifully written introspection that took me on a journey from Willow-Marie Power’s reflections to my own and back again. Isn’t that what reading a good book should be - a silent dialogue with the author that inspires a dialogue with one’s self? It is for this very reason that I can say that this book will stay with me long after I have read it. The life lessons that it contains are genuine, honest and of course, very real. They have inspired me to dive deeper into my own mind. Willow-Marie Power’s prose and poetry remind us that life is absolutely beautiful, but only when we dare to actively dive into it - vulnerable, naked and free of any illusion. This requires extraordinary amounts of self-awareness, humility and love. Willow-Marie Power’s book is a reminder that the beauty of life isn’t in the destination; it’s in the journey. My hope is that .real. inspires many people to begin their journey and say “YES!” to life. Thank you for your book – it is nothing short of inspiring.
