A Night Without Armor
A Night Without Armor | Jewel
7 posts | 12 read | 2 to read
One of the most respected artists in popular music today, Jewel is much more than a music industry success with her debut album selling more than 10 million copies. Before her gifted songwriting comes an even more individual art: Poetry. Now available in paperback, A Night without Armor highlights the poetry of Jewel taken from her journals which are both intimate and inspiring, to be embraced and enjoyed. Writing poems and keeping journals since childhood, Jewel has been searching for truth and meaning, turning to her words to record, to discover, and to reflect. In A Night Without Armor, her first collection of poetry, Jewel explores the fire of first love, the lessons of betrayal, and the healing of intimacy. She delves into matters of the home, the comfort of family, the beauty of Alaska, and the dislocation of divorce. Frank and honest, serious and suddenly playful, A Night Without Armor is a talented artist's intimate portrait of what makes us uniquely human.

I really love Jewel‘s poetry book (tagged). She really knows how to write poems and songs and lyrics.

So much more than a book of poems, this to me was truly a glimpse inside Jewel‘s head (or perhaps a journal from her late teens). I found this compilation to be imperfect, raw, simple, and beautiful. There was a sadness to many that touched my heart. What a lovely glimpse of this woman‘s most private thoughts.

My mom top left, 1913-2007. This had to be late 1920s-1932 ish. She looks so happy (before marriage and 7 kids...)

Kaye How cute. I love old pics like this. Yes, I do believe most of us would look much different if we compared photos of our younger, single selves to our older married with kids selves. Life can slap you around quite a bit in those years. 2y
Mdargusch I love this! 2y
tournevis This pic is amazing! The photos people took when the Kodak black box became available are amazing. They made sure the pics counted and they are full of story and life! 2y
