Struggleon is hopefully about the struggle to live well, the personal struggle of one’s own self and the collective struggle of our communities. This collection is emerging from the communities of harm reduction, plant medicine, the varied landscape of spiritual practice and experience, and mental health. Racial reconciliation is an important guiding framework in this effort.

I claim no authority beyond the simple fact that I’m alive, have survived, and have continued to find ways to love and be grateful despite the struggle. Thank you for reading.
