I am a traveler amongst the galaxies, a wanderer on the path obscured,
a bohemian spirit who’s lost her way in the twilight a time or two.
But you see, my dear, darkness is not a place that we should fear.
It is in that desolate place we bury our broken bones
and strengthen our weary hearts for the journey.
Solace is found in the darkest hours by recognizing the light within ourselves.
The winding road that leads to enlightenment is not paved,
nor is it outlined on a map guiding us to the celestial heavens we seek.
Our souls come equipped with internal astral navigation,
but we must silence the mind in order to follow its directions.

About the Author – DENA M. DAIGLE
Much like her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana, the story of Dena Daigle is truly one of survival. Her words are a testament for those with the strength to persevere, that the beginning of a woman with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and a burning desire for life. She writes with a warrior’s heart and a lover’s passion. As the ink begins to flow, she becomes one with the universe, spilling from her soul the pains of an inner child lost in the wilderness of an unforgiving world, and the joys of a woman embracing her Goddess within. Dena Daigle is a powerful voice booming from her poetic words in a society that has long tried to silence women like her. She knows these truths and has made it her mission to share them with the world…one sentence at a time. She has risen from the darkness, like a phoenix, ascended from the smoldered ruins of her past. And so, if one were to look today, you would find her, much like her beloved city, not surviving, but thriving, using her pen to scatter the ashes in hope of spreading Love, Light, and Life to the far corners of a world gone dark. – Clyde Hurlston
