“This book reminds us all to be unapologetically flawed and beautifully human. Adam's work serves as a permission slip to show up authentically and without shame. What a special gift.”
–Alexandra Elle, author of After the Rain
“Adam J. Kurtz is the relatable voice in a sea of expensive and excessive ‘wellness’ BS that says, ‘cut the crap, let’s get real, let’s get silly, let’s get through this.’ And I’m here for it.”
–Moorea Seal, author of The 52 Lists Series
“Adam acknowledges that life is messy and often frustrating, but always worth living. His art and words flourish with honesty and humor, reminding us that the best way--perhaps the only way--to move through each day is with more of the same.”
–Meera Lee Patel, artist and author of Start Where You Are and Create Your Own Calm
“Adam is singularly gifted with the ability to make you vigorously nod with recognition and in the same breath wonder, Did he just change my entire life?"
–Mari Andrew, author of Am I There Yet? and My Inner Sky
"Adam J. Kurtz never ceases to ground us in humor and realism with an effortless kindness underscoring everything he creates. You Are Here (For Now) makes me feel like I’m going to be ok, because it reminds me that not being ok is normal and even necessary. In a world obsessed with instant success, Adam reminds us to slow down and enjoy all the awkward pleasures of being human."
–Chani Nicholas, astrologer and author of You Were Born For This
"Just like people, some books are challenging, some are boring, some are beautiful. And some, like Adam JK's latest book, are like your new best friend. You Are Here (For Now): A Guide To Finding Your Way does what we’d all like our close friends to do for us in these difficult times: it picks you up when you’re down, it gives wise counsel, it encourages us in our creative work, it’s funny and gentle and caring, and it’s a book you just want to be around."
–Debbie Millman, Host of the Design Matters podcast and author of Why Design Matters
