For years I have had a story inside of me. It surfaced a few years back and I began the process. Then one day, I put my journal away and went back to work. It felt like the journey wasn’t finished and the story had more chapters. It is a fictional story loosely based on true characters. The main character faces many challenges in her journey. She deals with her problems from a unique vantage. My hope is that people will be able to relate to the characters and recognize the dynamics in their own life.
An excerpt from the beginning:
She looked beyond the horizon hoping to find the answers in the colors. Such beauty she thought. How would she get past the wall this time? The sky seemed so limitless and expansive. The air, filled with ever changing possibility. Yet her feet were planted firmly in the ground. If she were a sapling, she would break in half from the wind What would it take for her to pull her feet up and change direction?
The clouds began moving and the sun peeked it’s head out to warm her shoulders. The feeling of warmth began to flow through her veins. It became so hot, she had no choice but to move. Her foot lifted, free from the heavy burdens that were on her shoulders. She took another step forward and then another. The horizon was still in sight. She looked up to the sky and realized the rainbow that was hidden from her. She smiled and had an urge to skip in the street. With child-like abandon she moved with a deeper purpose. She was put on earth to be fearless. The world was colorful again and she was ready for the next chapter in her life.
Here’s to the beginning!
