Age of Empathy

Embracing the Wonder of Guilt-Free Pleasures

We need more time to enjoy what brings us joy

It’s the morning of the first of January, and I for once decided not to do anything.

As a morning person, I usually don’t need an alarm clock. Early birds have a powerful inner timer waking us up at the time we need.



We publish high-quality personal essays, humor essays, and writer interviews. Our goal is to provide a place for experienced writers to share authentic stories and connect with others, collectively celebrating a common passion, striving toward an age of empathy.
