I had the delight to read the following words on Instagram recently by a warm and talented entrepreneur, and Founder of My Ebony Box Jenaitre Farquharson:
'We believe very strongly in supporting phenomenal women and the work that they do, we have chosen to support and acknowledge the work of poetess and writer, Suzy Rigg. After meeting the wonderful Suzy, early this year, we were charmed by her warm spirit and striking energy. We were really excited to hear about the release of her brand new book, Songs of My Soul. The beautiful poetess and writer sent us a copy of her brand new book to review and we really enjoyed taking a moment out to appreciate the exciting and raw work by Suzy, we felt a deep connection while reading Songs of My Soul and what we loved about reading this book was that we felt her poetry took us on a journey of life, we felt her passion while she kept stimulating our minds, page after page. She covers many diverse areas of the shared human experiences from falling in love, womanhood, motherhood, ageing and heartache. Our favourite poem in the book is called Maya, and inspired by our phenomenal woman Maya Angelou.
I'm still stunned, it feels like reading about another person. I am truly humbled to have created deep feeling in another human being - all I can hope for is that everyone who reads Songs of My Soul, closes the book feeling hopeful, positive and connected. The winding road of life is something we all tread together.
