AWAKE AT WORK
Using writing as a platform, explore how simply showing up and attending to your own experience is the starting point for attending to others.
“As an empathic observer, Bloom has captured feelings and associated impressions on the subject of mortality that are difficult to express, even for one experiencing them first-hand. This, along with the accessibility of her language, may lead some to consider her a Canadian contemporary People’s Poet, a kind of poet the country needs as much today as ever.”
— LAURIE ANNE FUHR, REVIEW OF THE MORE IN BYWORDS
“Whether looking inward or outward, Bloom writes with directness, ringing clarity and a quiet wisdom. These are poems as luminous as the gorgeous Mark Rothko print that graces the book’s cover.”
