Cyclical living in all its forms: body, sun, moon, and living world. A story in-progress, in the midst of collapse, in an ever-healing body. A journal, of sorts.

This is Peace of the Whole, where I’m imagining a life beyond ruthless exponential growth and rampant disconnection from each other and the living world. A more cyclical life. Hopefully a cyclical future. Along the way, I talk about seasons, menstrual cycles, chronic illness and the collapsing world we live in now.

You are welcome here.


UPDATE: As of early January 2024, paid subscriptions have been paused indefinitely and I am on hiatus from publishing at least until the spring equinox.


The writer:

I’m Ema. The path that’s led me here has be winding and so far includes: a degree in anthropology, small farms, libraries, botanical dyeing, and care work. Right now I live on unceded traditional homelands of the Susquehannock/Conestoga with my husband and twin cats.
