"Love and Rage is a love song to my anger. Anger and love can exist together. Matter of fact, this love song is a duet between anger and love. Part of this duet means singing about the practice of love for ourselves and the love of wanting others to be happy. Listen to my curated playlist as you read my book." -- Lama Rod
