[r:]EVOLUTION in Ten is a chronicle of ten years of writing, thinking, breathing, and riding this beautifully-adorned rock around the Sun punctuated by a ritual celebration of each successful revolution with written reflection. Honesty, vulnerability, strength, contraction and growth laid bare as a tree viewed in cross-section. This is me.
