I am happy to share that the Innovation on Medium has published a piece I wrote in summer 2015.
This piece was dear to my heart. I wrote it on the way back from the Great Lakes in Ontario. The Great Lakes were as lovely and restorative as the disappointment I was recovering from was troubling. The contrast between the accepting, majestic water bodies and the stress before was extreme and would be comedian, if the story itself had not been so sad and maddening.
I was relieved to come home and to be safe. I felt glad to be alive, glad to wake up in my surroundings.
Seeing this piece published brings peace to my memories, a little more closure to a dramatic chapter, more forgiveness to the people who caused it.
My writing does not reveal the events, because I focused on what I wanted to keep – the wholesome elements of the trip… and the feelings of integration and gratitude to life.
