Canadian writer Lara Margaret Marjerrison spoke to us ahead of Bell Let’s Talk Day about her debut book of poetry, Grief & Loss & Love & Sex, and how she hopes it offers a glimmer of light for those who need it most.
Bodies of Stories is an international, curated storytelling show on Zoom, with the feel of your cozy living room. It originated in Toronto in January 2020 with the mission to make the experience of first-person stories told live accessible beyond venues, cities and borders"
"Life Story Project illustrates our shared human connection by capturing beautiful, poignant moments of real people baring their souls. Life Story Project reminds us that we are all human and struggle with the same issues of love, loss, pain, fear and regret... Everyone has a story to tell. Sometimes all it takes is the right question."
In this powerful piece, Lara explores how the right decisions are often not easy decisions and in that place within ourselves where our deepest truths reside, our clearest choices are most in alignment with our greater life’s purpose.
"I couldn’t put this book down. Raw, honest and beautifully written. Marjerrison talks so openly and honestly about her grief and I couldn’t stop reading her poems because she gave words to feelings I could never describe. Succinct, heartbreaking, inspiring.. and what it means to be human" ~Cathy
