How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news?
"If Paulo Coelho and J.Cole wrote a book together, it would sound like this."
Dreamy fiction meets Rap. Punch lines and poetry till you're lost inside a bird trap. It's the kind of story most people don't write. It's fragmented, spaced out and unhinged, like real life — but still sails you home in a wonderful way. You will wish more stories were written this way. Stories that dare to talk about worshipping God and being left wiped out by His presence.
This beautiful narrative is infused with influences from Jazz and Hip-Hop and visions of a sweet paradise that the story ultimately leads us to. Its all inspired by a message that Jesus delivered to his disciples:
In my Fathers house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
- John 14:2
Child of Earth is a journey through life's meaning and destiny. From love and wisdom to today's social issues plaguing communities. The story is seeking resolve. A place where it all comes together. A place where it ends and begins and time is stretched into a moment so meaningful that time itself is swallowed up and it's just you and the world and the truth, the way it was always meant to be.
This is where the journey leads us to, but how we get there is just as fun and astounding and rich.
This book is good news, carried on beautiful feet. It's the wise speaker upon the mountain in a world of confusions that needs to be heard. Its a spiritual journey packed into parables, unashamed of suffering and unashamed of grace.
It was a long year of trying to catch the next spark. Wherever it would pop. To see what new things life teaches me and try to learn how to live, mentally and spiritually. I guess you could say this was about growing and making memories. I had no idea what I was going for, I only knew it was going to end with a story about coming to a land with a very peculiar mansion: a house full of rooms. A place where everyone can live in harmony.
I write pretty obliviously. I never knew what style I was going to take on next. I like to keep the fire dancing and I also liked the long weeks of anticipating the next piece of work—whatever it might be. It took about a year to write this book and some more months putting it together. I really don't know how much it will touch people. But right now I realize part of Child of Earth is about uniting people and forgiving each other. That's the only way we can heal from our wounds.
