“I have gone into the Woods to rest and renew… Walking away from the person I have been…or would become…Where the wind in the trees called me to the Sea to become who I was meant to be…”
In my memoir, I share my story, my life, my journey of walking away from my life with no plans, no dreams, into the unknown woods of Wisconsin. There I confront the issues that have fragmented my sense-of-identity; dissociation, depersonalization, depression, death and grief. Hearing the wind in the trees, I follow the sound of the ocean to find myself and my dreams and rediscover my love of the sea.
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. What a journey you have been on and still are on. I laughed, I cried, I rejoices in your life experiences” Marie
“The wisdom of your heart comes from the lessons of nature and takes wings in your creative expression.”
Through this collection of essays I hope to inspire you to connect with nature and your own authentic essence, hear your deep inner wisdom, discover your own song in your heart and dance the steps to your own unique dance of life.
