Inhale the Future, Exhale the Past

Jacqueline Baerwald's avatar Jacqueline Baerwald

“You can read her like a book,” or can you? Just as the pages of a suspenseful plot keep us gripping the edge, so is life. We can skim back through the previous chapters of our existence and pray we learn from our past, but what awaits on the next page? “Inhale the Future, Exhale the Past” is a novel invitation to explore the very present you exist in, the choice that hangs between the was and the will be. Someone once said the best way to predict the future is to create it. We are not defined by our past, only prepared by it. What is breathing through the sentence you’re writing, right now? Suffocating fears or breathtaking dreams?
