We speak in unison every time we speak
We speak in unison every time we speak is a creative nonfiction that explores the role of synchronicity in today's social and cultural landscape. Analytical, sarcastic, humorous and slightly uncomfortable, this essay invites the reader on a journey through some of our deepest desires and fears when it comes to thinking of us as individuals and of humanity as a collective force.
Both a challenge and a celebration, the book gently takes you out of your comfort zone and offers you an open path to reconsider where we are in the world in relation to others.
It is, above all, an exciting exercise for our imagination and a little window to a world of endless possibilities.
