Marjean Brooks is an author and writer living in the Birmingham area. Aside from books and spiritual articles, she has written poetry about things that move her heart since she was a child. This past year has been a difficult one as she lost three close family members, her brother by a farming accident and both her mother and mother-in-law by Covid. Writing is a way for Marjean to process and grieve ~ this poem will be used in a celebration of life gathering for her beloved brother in June. Married to Ricky Brooks for 30 years, they share six grown children as well as eleven talented grandchildren!

We were stirred by Jonathan's discussion of territories vs. hierarchies as it relates to artists and writers. As a writer himself, he encourages creators to push past the tendency to compare and tend to their own journeys as creators.
