I’m at a time in my life where I’m ready for something new.
I’m a poet, artist & yoga instructor.
This blog will follow my trip on the Appalachian Trail.
Several well-meaning people have questioned the wisdom of me hiking.
I made up my mind while talking to a well-known poet. I told him that I was going to hike but that I might get off at the first stop. His reply was, “Well I wouldn’t get on any trail I couldn’t get off of.”
At that point I decided to go.
It’s been a year since I’ve updated this page. A lot has happened. I walked through GA. My pack was too heavy for my 60 yr old knees, but I’ve developed a taste for backpacking.
I’ve continued to observe nature & write poetry. My husband & I are moving to The White Mountains in New Hampshire. He has a new job & I have 47 more Mountains to climb. I plan to write & take my travel water color set on each hike. That’s the plan….we’ll see what happens 🙂
WELL….what happens when I try & paint outdoors…bugs…so hot-I drink my paint water… and many other excuses. However, there are so many amazing places to photograph & keep in my soul… to emerge as they are ready in my paintings.
A work in progress. Aren’t we all?
We don’t do
Out of fear
of what we think
We will never
