Beloved. Dearheart. 

If it’s going to be this hard, how are we supposed to show up?

In a world of polycrises – with multiple genocides happening in parallel, impending climate collapse and bad actors everywhere – who are we going to be?

As a climate justice organiser and activist for a free Iran, as a parent trying to raise a child in a world on trajectory to be unliveable… I ask mysef this question every day. How will I resource myself? How will I keep up the flow of hope and love and fire –  to keep being a part of the wave of humanity struggling to hold us back from the cliff edge.

Beloved: words for the new way is a poetry book inviting us all to fall in love with collective care. It invites us, beloved, to be exquisite to each other.
