There it is, in the right-hand corner of the photo: the project that kidnapped me for two years. Words cannot describe the relief I feel now that I’m on the other side of 59,000 words and the emotional archaeological dig required to write Handmade Heart – On the run and looking for love.

Energizing Blueberry-Green Smoothie made in my new (swoon) VitaMix: 2 cups spinach, 2-3 large leaves kale, thumb-sized chunk of ginger root, a lemon, a lime, 1 apple, 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1 cup water.
Life is starting to feel a bit more in balance. Allelujah! Now all I have to do is talk myself into loving the idea of reading out loud to an auditorium full of people.
