I remember thinking I needed a different bike or better weather. And while those things would have helped, what I really needed was a change in attitude.
It was a rare occasion that I walked home on my own, and those were the best.
“How personal do I want to get?” I heard myself ask as I brainstormed story ideas in the coffee shop. How personal?
The story of a figure standing outside a little log cabin on the top of a mountain, overlooked by even larger, distant snow-capped mountains.
It's deeply personal and upsetting and inspiring... because I want to avoid feeling that way more than almost anything else in life.
