Excerpts From a Book Untitled
by Owen Cornell

Our lives are a collection of moments that accumulate over time, flowing one into the next. When we experience those moments as deeply as possible, and learn from them, we grow, and we change. Struggling to find where you belong. Looking for love in a time of difficulty and in counterintuitive places. Reconciling what others may view as failure and using it to strengthen you in the long term. All of these themes and more are explored in Excerpts From a Book Untitled, a collection of free-verse poetry that plays with form and convention to explore the poet’s life. Confessional and introspective, it is an honest exploration of the power of nature, the value of writing, the struggles and joys of love, the importance of friendship, and reflecting back on who we used to be. This book is deeply personal, supported by a style of poetry that is creative, open, honest, and unrestricted. The freedom from constraints within the poetry itself reflects the freedom of the authors life, and the importance of exploration, play, and creativity to the human spirit.

Owen Cornell started writing because he didn’t know what to do with all of his feelings, and he hasn’t stopped feeling. He has built his life around the pursuit of passion and joy wherever possible. This has led him to live a fairly nomadic lifestyle, often following the best weather for rock climbing and skiing, but always surrounded by people he loves. Owen mostly lives out of his van, which allows him to focus on seeking opportunities to do the things he enjoys, including reading, cycling, dogsledding, winter camping, and backpacking. He is deeply passionate about the outdoors and about doing one’s best to cultivate joy wherever you go. He loves to drift from place to place - often in British Columbia, which is where he considers home – immersing himself in the spaces he ends up before eventually moving on to the next place, and the next adventure.
