The Right Opportunity
January 16th, 2015 by

About a year after I lost Kevin I signed myself up for every opportunity possible in the hopes that my life’s dreams would align and I would be presented with the perfect situation.  It wasn’t a bad plan and it sent me on a ton of adventures.  I queried and received various travel writing gigs, signed […]

The Plight of the Self Published Author
January 7th, 2015 by

I wish I had made my Kickstarter goal $10,000 so I could have hired an agent and pitched my book to publishers and have let them do all the work.  I’d still have had to market it myself, but then all the logistics of actually being able to eventually hold my book in my hands […]

Owning My Future
December 22nd, 2014 by

The end of the year always gives me a pause to reflect on my life and where I am, even if there’s really no time for things like that.  I’ve been weighing out a few “life options” with my husband and friends and last week I realized I needed to let go of a dream […]

Natural Healing
May 29th, 2014 by

Even when my lungs burn up the trail and I remember how deeply out of shape I am, I put one boot in front of the other and remind myself that this is healing in so many ways.  I know that my muscles are building, fat is melting, lung power increasing, and soul and mind […]

Healing Begins Outside
February 28th, 2014 by

If you want to help me heal, put me on a trail. It’s where I think best.  It used to be that writing was the best outlet for my worries, but so many things have caused me to hold back my words.  Then, I did the worst thing I could do.  After I broke my […]

Social Justice
January 5th, 2015 by

Social justice has always seemed extreme to me. Something I wouldn’t do. I’d sign petitions, like or follow the social media outlets of causes I believed in; I still do. It’s a comfortable way to feel involved without being extreme, without putting myself in the public eye as a person who cares passionately about the […]

Fighting a Pipeline, Letting Go of Grief, and Celebrating a Book
November 6th, 2014 by

Understatement of the Year: It’s been a chaotic 2 weeks. 2 Tuesdays ago I passed 2 anniversaries: that of funding my Kickstarter publishing project and 6 years since losing Kevin. Amongst the emotions of that anniversary I become deeply immersed in a grassroots pipeline prevention (sounds much better than ant-pipeline, right?) movement in my home county of Lancaster, […]
