About this ebook

The Is of Us is an attempt at re-piecing together the shattered identity of a trauma survivor. In a colorful timeline of vivid, real-time accounts, secondary losses, and existential discoveries, the author explores centuries of thinking and philosophy applied in her own tale. Whether stumbling upon a fig tree while lost and famished in the wilderness, covering the bloodied scene of her husbands death with roses, or hurling herself out of an airplane upside down at 120 miles per hour, Borealis regales the reader with a slew of her own intense experiences balanced with a spoonful of perspective. The author invites us on a wild ride through the landscape of a life reimagined and boundless. Its relevance is echoed in Eastern philosophy, physics, and adventure stories. Gripping and poignant while philosophical and uplifting, familiar yet uncanny, metaphysical yet scientific enough to interest intelligent questioners, this story will resonate with and fascinate anyone who lives or will die.

About the author

Amelia Borealis is the author of The Is of Us. Originally an opera singer, Borealis has her innate sensitivity and artist’s spirit present in even her banal endeavors. With her being a spare-time writer, it was not until the sudden death of her young husband that a certain enlightenment developed in her prose. Having advanced several notches on the life-perspective dial with a sudden prolificacy never before realized, Amelia Borealis endeavors to reach out in a dark world to the cognoscenti of grievers with a message of recognition. Namaste.
