"Every time I have the privilege of sharing the stage with Tonya, I'm reminded of the power of words. With nothing but a poem, she wakes me up to the gift of being alive. Of being present to the moment. The beautifully, painfully, awkward joy of being human. Her words sing louder than guitars, drums, and turntables. I'm honored to call her a friend."

"How To Survive Today" is a mirror of reflection for those with heart as well as a glorious invitation to really SEE oneself. Tonya, as always, offers herself through her words as a teacher, friend, muse, and magician. By the time you're done with this collection of her work you will have that feeling you get right after time spent bathing in the sun: seen, soft and a little bit stronger.
