About Digressions

It’s hard, being alive. We burn, burn, burn from the inside out as we face our inner turmoils and delight in our secret passions. We must overcome love as frequently as lust. We must embrace our vulnerabilities and heartbreaks. And we must survive the battle between our animal instincts and our morals. That is the human condition, enduring the complex pain and joy associated with being truly awake, present, alive. And that is what is showcased in this 14th volume of Digressions. Our contributors bear their scorched souls so that the readers may find solace from their afflictions. But while we all suffer from the human condition, experiencing the pain, melancholy, and loss associated with life, we are intensley grateful for this suffering. Without it, the meaning of the joys, lessons, and beauties of the world would be lost to us. And so, we revel in the burning.
