A chapbook of poems which the author describes as follows: We are who we are because of the lives our ancestors lived, the choices they made, and the decisions the world made for them.

Truly beautiful writing with thoughtful and effective pacing. Waffle has the ability to recall her grandparents and parents with intimacy and respect through her poetic memory of moments in time. These poems reveal striking bits of her life, leading the reader to reflect and remember key aspects of our own lives.
Some of these poems are extremely emotional - they were for me, anyway. Julienne has a wonderful voice that resonates with me as a woman, a daughter, and a mom. She writes from a raw place in her soul that, paradoxically, soothes.
