I don’t know if it even matters the issue I was struggling with.  … Read More

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeChoices2 Comments

When I was in high school, I had a friend who ran the hurdles. She was a year older, a few inches taller than me and with very long lean legs. Watching her run the hurdles was a beautiful sight.

It’s been awhile since I last wrote. I took some time off for the holidays and as soon as January began, life had me off and running.

inspiration is everywhere

I attended a new yoga class yesterday. When the instructor began, she let us know that today was a significant day for her. It was her first day as a full time instructor as she was no longer doing her part time job to supplement her yoga work. I was ecstatic for her. I didn’t know her and had never … Read More
