O Beautiful Dust

By R.W. Walker
Can we pray together anymore?

ANTHOLOGIES

There is Us: Flowers for Ukraine

The first There is Us anthology was born from a desire to find a tangible way for small creators to help with COVID-19 relief efforts. Now, in its third installment, it aims to support relief efforts for Ukraine in the wake of Russia's attacks.

 

The hope is that even while sales from this collection are going to organizations providing much-needed aid (organizations like World Central Kitchen, Spare a Rose, and Airbnb's hosting initiative), the stories and poetry inside might uplift and encourage those who might need some light right now.
