I am a middle-aged woman living in the Midwest US who is undergoing a period of complete transformation in many areas of my life. This blog is a chance to explore the changing thought patterns, self-perceptions, and belief systems in a safe (and anonymous) place.
I am a lover of trees and of nature. The woods are where I am most at peace.
I am a lover of books, of writing, of words. I collect quotes that make me think. I surround myself with books that I count as friends.
I am a lover of solitude and quiet. I love nothing more than unscheduled time home alone with my books and my writing.
I am a healer, a seeker, a lover of truth and beauty, a lonely soul who aches for deep connection.
I am a person of deep faith who— as a woman, a lesbian, and a progressive—struggles to find a welcoming home within the faith tradition of her childhood, but who is also unwilling to walk away from her experience of the divine that she has known.
I thirst for knowledge and am always trying to learn new things. I ache for wisdom and reach with continual hope to understand myself, others, and life in ever-deepening ways.
I am a yoga teacher, a life coach, a Reiki Practitioner, and a struggling meditator.
I am learning how to dance with joy in the midst of my journey through the chrysalis, letting go of who I have been and looking forward to who I am becoming.
Thank you for joining me on my journey through this transformation from brokenness to greater wholeness.
