Beyond is about endings that lead to new and unexpected beginnings. It is about learning to recognize the limits we cannot erase, the longings we carry, the love we crave, and the losses that change us.
Beyond is also a journey of wrestling. Of accepting disability. Of admitting dreams. Of loving and losing. Mostly it is about being, becoming, and seeing beyond.
Throughout the book, Laura tells her story and she invites you to explore your own. May each poem lead you to – somewhere you've been, somewhere you are, or somewhere you hope to go.
