I give a damn.

Tea and Madness

And when it falls into silence again, the void echoes fills me with wonder. Wonder only because I no longer remember if this small entity isn’t real or if it whispers the truth.

C. Streetlight’s memoir, Tea & Madness, is a collection of prose and poetry separated into the seasons of her life. Each season is inspired by her experiences: grieving a lost baby, understanding depression, anger, betrayal, surviving rape and the acceptance that she cannot forgive. Balanced somehow within the darkness is the wonder in motherhood and empathetic relationships. As her seasons change, she continues trying to find the balance of existing between normalcy and madness.

…bridges our contrasts… …and reminds us that there is a wilderness inside all of us, full of the things we love and hate…Loren Kleinman, The Dark Cave Between My Ribs
…I found myself whispering lines aloud and smiling at the way they lightened my heart. …

“It’s sort of miraculous to wake up realizing “I can” after years of being told “You can’t.”
