Now Available: Caregiving in Five Lines eBook, Volume 2

Each week, @ejourneys, who cares for her partner, shares a photo-poem in our Community Caregiving Journal. Her photo-poems speak the truth of her caregiving days through her stunning creativity. Her second eBook, Caregiving in Five Lines, Volume 2, features another 30 of her photo-poems.

Ejourneys not only gives to you through her eBook but she gives to the community. She’s donating all proceeds from the sale of her book to “(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 Denise’s 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 “Friends,” she writes:


light my way ~~

the golden glow

of hearts laid open,

mending mine

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