Gaynell Meij Book

Story & Experience

Connecticut-based writer and artist e. Gaynell m. Meij weaves together photography, art, and prose poetry to evoke synchronicities in nature and human perception. Inspired by Radical Joy for Hard Times’s People Binding the Earth practice, in which anyone who requested it received a length of hands-spun golden yarn with which to make beauty for a hurt place, Meij created a book in which she reflects on threads, nets, and webs in words and images.  Click to read the book on flipsnack.com.
