I am beyond thrilled that you contacted me. Yes, The Book of Mev, has been helping me to grow and change as I begin my journey into a year of volunteer service with Mercy Volunteer Corps. I am truly in awe of how honest and intimate you were about your relationship to Mev. It was quite bold and much appreciated to put out the love letters that you shared with one another. I’ve been telling so many people about the wonderful lessons that the book has taught me. The concept of “The struggle is one” is what I’ve been marinating about for long time. I’m especially drawn to Mev as a liberation photographer, as I too like to use my prints, videos, and artworks as a form of advocacy.
I would absolutely love a copy of the book. I’m so grateful that you would offer it to me.
And yes, MVC is enriching me beyond description and it’s only been my first week here in Detroit! I’ll be the Media/Marketing Coordinator for Matrix Theatre Co., a wonderful place that puts on plays about social justice issues, has puppetry, and works with young kids and special needs adults. If you would like, you can follow my journey through the link below.
Thank you so much for you openness. I am very appreciative of getting to know the story of Mev through you. I hope all is wonderful in your neck of the woods!
Peace & Love,
