FICTION: Barriers by Holly Hawk

Holly is a northern-hearted wanderer, currently living in the forest of their dreams. They prefer the comforts of a wood stove and a dog called Finn over any fixed address. Holly uses writing to shine light on the beauty of life's in-between moments and to take up space in a gentle way. When Holly isn't purposely trying to get lost in a forest, they are searching for stories waiting to be told from every person they encounter. Holly’s dream is that we can all listen to those stories to better understand one another. Holly once found an eagle feather in a rain forest and their favorite season is spring.
