Rising Tides: Reflections for Climate Changing Times, Book Review

I’m very pleased to share my review in The Miramichi Reader of the climate change anthology Rising Tides.

We live on this earth without reflecting sufficiently on how we impact it. Through story, poetry and personal climate testimonies, Rising Tides offers us a window into the feelings and views of forty-two writers closely connected to the climate crisis.

“The way rain falls the spring of life seed to root, stem to leaves. Oh trees, weather maker, life shaper, air sweet. Language of snail, moss lichen. Everything returns …” The intricate simplicity and beauty of Hiromi Goto’s language in ‘This is the Way’ particularly resonated with me, reinforcing one of the anthology’s messages to observe and listen to the change around us.

You can read the review here. Rising Tides is edited by Catriona Sandilands and published by Caitlin Press.
