My thoughts…

We’ve just been through an incredible eighteen months. Not the good kind of incredible either. Perhaps incredulous is a better word for it. A lot has happened. A lot has changed. Much of the world still lives under restrictions that were incomprehensible in 2019. So, then, how to sum it up? You can’t. But you can try. Nikita Gill did – and the result? A collection of poetry that will have you saying, ‘Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes’ as you relate over and over again to her words. Nikita has captured, through a collection of writings, what many of us couldn’t even begin to work out on paper.

You will read this collection of Poetry and you will feel less alone. Nikita takes our collective trauma and pushes us forward into a new territory. One where we can begin to work through the feelings of confusion that the last eighteen months has dragged us through. She reminds us of the things we were grateful for and the things that are no longer mammoth and big in the face of something even bigger. Everyone will take something different from this book. There will be a piece or a line or even a word that will strike a chord with you. It will hopefully be a reminder, most of all, of the beauty in slowing down, taking an extra moment with a loved one, and making the most of every single second life throws at you.
