Although I officially "launched" Roots & Wings several years ago, it has taken a while to figure out what its main purpose should be. Originally, there were to be three different products (ie books): one for elementary school students, one for high school students,
and one for adults/university students. For a number of reasons, this didn't pan out.
I think I was making things too difficult for myself ... trying to answer the question "What I am offering
through this branch of One Thousand Trees?" I realize now that the answer is a simple one.
I am offering an outlet for creative expression, knowing as I do how important it is for our mental health.
There are four pages on this site:
Writing: this is the replacement for One Thousand Trees magazine, which I published every month for ten years. It's more a standalone format, and I accept articles, poetry etc. and put live once a month. The deadline each month is posted on the Writing page.
Books: I will provide information about books that I have either published, or whose authors I am connected with,
that have a mental health component.
Events: information about local and online events with a mental health component.
Meditations and Motivational Talks: links to audio/video files.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something to contribute, or promote on this site.
