Through poetry, imagery and lyric prose, writers Kerri ní Dochartaigh and Mícheál McCann in collaboration with photographer Michelle Moloney explore the seeds of beginnings and endings, and the search for places where we find ourselves and each other. Filled with hope and elegy, these evocative reflections offer a measure of grace, solace and renewal.
