My name is Anj Granieri. I’m a writer. A wonderer. A wanderer. A singer of songs. A teller of stories. An adventurer, and a seeker of truth. Let me set your heart on fire. Let me breathe on the embers of what it is that stirs your soul. And let me remind you of why you are alive: to be fearless, insatiably curious, and to know love.
“Find where Joy resides, and give it voice far beyond singing. For to miss the Joy, is to miss it all."
The four points of my soul’s compass are travel, music, writing and health. The North Star, which guides the compass that directs my life- is connection (the wellspring of Joy.) Connection begins with pure honesty within the self. It is then deepened by connection found with others. Only through sharing our authentic human experience, will we ever come to find our common ground, and the ultimate truth, that Joy and suffering are common denominators. We are not so different as we believe ourselves to be. We are all both teachers and students. In this spirit, I share my story.
