Symbiotic Complexity is a collection of hybrid memoir essays that explores the connection between the mental, physical and spiritual self. Each essay focuses on the body, in some way or another. In this collection I play with lyricism, form, and memory, to explore what it means to be human. I set out to write just about the physical and realized I can't do that without the mental since they are two halves of a whole that makes us human. In doing so, I realized that this collection really focuses on the complexities that being human creates and the impact that society, family, spirituality, and experiences have on the self as a whole.
