LOVE & CIGARETTES
'even when our conjoined worlds of beautiful chaos were slashed to part we still came together one last time & drew from the well we built from scratch made of earth, ocean blood, wind & fire so delicately strong & we just sat there in the pure wonder of our little world expanding silence - ever potent & you taught me over again when you had every right to hate me what love really is'

love & cigarettes is an exploration of words, nature & heart; birthed in a season of love & surrender, questions & contradictions.
my little book of prose & poetry was birthed in a season of raw questioning, giving in to the hushed cries of my heart & true messy falling apart. what it feels like to fall apart at the same time as falling in love with the love of my life & with myself all over again makes quite the little collection.
It runs for 40 days & all funds go into the printing
production & costs.
If we go above & beyond the goal amount my book will be forever available via my online store, & through wholesalers online & offline.
“life & loss, love & ever-longing, living & letting go. All the "Ls" that mark our biggest turning points & inner contradictions which all just push for a deeper acceptance of all parts of who we are. Jessi's little book of treasures is a book but you can't help but behold. Words that flutter off the page - sweet as chai - lovingly infectious”

I am in awe of this young woman - who has done what many of us writers, dreamers & composers do - she backed herself & stood up for her words, her voice, her beauty & her magic. Her work arrived in my letterbox amid a churned up ocean of events. I cried alongside her vulnerabilities & found solace in the way they echo mine, although we are two very unique women on difference voyages. Thank you for always being a spark of energy & the bolt of courage we could all learn a little more from.
