Musings from the Moon - a book of prose


The book that reminds you to breathe...

Musings from the Moon is a book of prose and illustrations inspiring self-love and healing by Jenna Ramondo.

'I started to realise that if I wanted that beauty and wonder to fall out of my fingertips then I had to feel it first... and to feel it I had to blindly hand over every fear and crippling doubt in exchange for such magic.'

'To those who are vulnerable enough to show the entirety of human beauty. The kind with bumps and scars and life’s battles proudly written on their skin. There’s a freedom seeping through the pores of such beauty. Without apology, a kind of raw, imperfect perfection.'

'Take a deep breath in... and lay down all that hurts you. It is time now, dear one, to put it down. To free yourself from the illusion that you need to be more to become yourself.'

'If the universe can make the sun shine and the moon glow... trust it can do the same for you'.

'How lovely that letting go happens in the body, not the mind. How lovely to not have to figure it out in words and to be free by something as simple as breathing or relaxing the space around your heart.'

'You’re beautiful. Not like the ink on those glossy pages, but like the most loved book on the shelf. The one with the torn pages and glassy eyed tales, with honest words spelling out your deepest chapters and a spine that somehow gathers them with unbreakable threads, no matter how many fingers have creased your pages.'

'There are no parts of ourselves that need to be hidden. There are no parts of ourselves that we need to be rid of. There is not a single piece of you, no matter how deep and dark and terrifying that isn't worthy of being embodied. The entirety of you is welcome'

'The sun has your hand, the moon has your back.'

'You don’t have to try to believe in magic. Put your hand over your heart. Can’t you feel that? If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is.'
