I’ve spent the last 15 months bleeding. It’s true. Uncontrollable and heavy as hell. I wrote a piece on it for Salon. But that was only 5 months in! I still bled for 10 MORE months! Finally, after blood transfusions, iron transfusions, and a recent medical procedure, I am only bleeding a little bit, and I simply must take advantage of it.
I have an adventure blog named, Mountains for Breakfast, where I document my long distance backpacking and travels, and I would love for all of you who have enjoyed my writing to come follow me over there. Essays and posts will still be personal stories, and often bittersweet, as that is simply the lens color I was born with: Bittersweet. But travel/backpacking is also fun and goofy (or is that just me?) and of course, there will be lots of pictures.
Please come enjoy with me my first trip of the season: Scotland’s West Highland Way! It’s a 96-mile route that traverses the highlands by day and ends each night in a picturesque village. I’ve never done this kind of trekking before, the kind where I don’t have to sleep in a tent at the end of a grueling day.
If all goes well, I will be spending the rest of the year adventuring, which means I probably won’t be posting here. So come on over to Mountains for Breakfast: Misadventures in Backpacking.
Thank you all for reading my stories. I am working on a memoir and will have more to share here later in the year.
