The Dark Between Stars
by Atticus
Atticus has captured the hearts and minds of many with his poignant words and minimalist artistry on Instagram. In his collection of poetry, THE DARK BETWEEN STARS, he turns his attention to the dualities of our lived experiences—the inescapable connections between our highest highs and lowest lows. As Atticus writes of sunsets, sharing a bottle of wine on the river, creating, and destroying, he illustrates the need for moments of both beauty and pain—the darkness and the stars—to fully appreciate all that life and love have to offer.
