Age of Empathy


Life as Seasons Rather Than Chapters

A poem of reflection

If you think about life as a book,
each phase becomes a chapter,
moving along, moving forward.

Chapter 13,
our protagonist chased numbers:
number of Facebook friends,
number on the scale,
percentage marks.



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.
