Desert Bloom

Author: Russ VanHeel

ISBN 978-1-62137-959-1 (eBook)



I know first- hand what mental illness is and what it feels like. I know the weight of a
world in disarray that falls lopsided and lands on one's back. It continually slumps their
posture until they're fallen and then they have to learn to walk on their knees. They become
their disfigurements that paint whatever clothes they wear invisible so they're
forced to walk naked in the world.
