Now Available: Caregiving in Five Lines by Ejourneys

Denise
Gogyohka-MissYou asked for it and @ejourneys has delivered!

She spent this weekend creating an eBook featuring her beautiful photo-poems. Her eBook, Caregiving in Five Lines, is now available for purchase in our store. You can purchase Caregiving in Five Lines for $4.97, below.

Ejourneys not only gives to you through her eBook but she gives to the Caregiving.com community. She’s donating all proceeds from the sale of her book to Caregiving.com. “(The) site, and the community it nurtures thanks to Denise Brown, has saved my sanity,” she says. “It has helped me live a life that is better and healthier for both myself and my caree – through the simple yet profound acts of connecting with others.”

Caregiving in Five Lines began as a series of blog posts under the Community Caregiving Journal. The poems take their one-word titles from my prompts and are written in a form called the Gogyohka. Invented in 1957 by Japanese poet Enta Kusakabe, the Gogyohka is verse written in five lines. More about the form can be found here.

The poems accompany photographs that Ejourneys has taken over the years. Bob’s (@rainbow) photo-poems inspired her to create her own.

The 36-page eBook features 30 photo-poems. In her poem entitled “Again,” she writes:

For all the repetitions

in  a day,

there are these, too–

kisses blown across a room,

arms holding each other close

“Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for purchasing this book and for supporting Caregiving.com,” Ejourneys says. (We do, too!)

Thanks so much, Ejourneys, for your gorgeous gift to all of us.
