I Begin

 I have just published my first book.
Can't hardly believe it is done, it feels like I birth my third child.
I Begin: poetry and prayers of a woman's journey through loss and grief is a meditation on life, love, loss, and incredible perseverance.  In this, Ginny Gaskill’s first poetry collection, she chronicles a journey of devastating loss that ultimately leads not only to a deeper faith in herself and in life, but increased wellbeing and sense of belonging in a community of artists.  Ginny recounts her experience as a “rebuilding of soul,” a need and a quest that should interest any reader truly engaged in the sorrows and joys of a life well lived.  It is through speaking her truth that Ginny Gaskill has survived—and thrived.  She invites us to begin, and begin again, as we enter into that shared experience where life takes on new meaning through opening to all that love holds.
